Lee Passarella
Audiophile Audition, February 2017

Ophelia and Gertrude are well if not outstandingly played; Marcus Griffiths’ wrathful Laertes is finer. …The important roles of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are in good hands…, Guildenstern being played by the pretty Bethan Cullinane, another turnabout that seems quite fair: in Shakespeare’s theater, young boys always portrayed female characters. © 2017 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

The Flip Side, January 2017

Young British actor Paapa Essiedu was one of the highlights of the recent Shakespeare Live! at Stratford for the 400th anniversary of his death (shown on PBS), speaking Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” speech with clarity and power, so it’s heartening that he plays the part with intelligence and charisma in Simon Godwin’s…staging at the Royal Shakespeare Company. …Essiedu shows he’s one of Britain’s great acting hopes. © 2017 The Flip Side Read complete review
