"Stolen Shakespeare Guild desrves recognition for consistently bringing passion to classic theater in North Texas, and for refining the palated of audiences with hese theatrical delicacies" M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"Autrey’s direction of these plays is efficient, inventive and whimsical. He shows a deep love and understanding of the original material, even as he pokes them now and again with a bit of parody. " M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"Morgan and Walker deliver surprisingly nuanced performances as exasperated and/or bewildered straight men-counterpoints to their clownish servants. M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"The energetic piece moves along quickly, but without us being surprised at what will come, since we see it coming. The best part is Dromio's speech about his encounter with the kitchen wench." Clyde Berry, , Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's The Column 8/15/10.

 

As the Dromios, Coffman and Reaves play up the lunacy as quick-witted wiseacres, providing the most uproarious moments of the show. "  M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"Keith Glenn and Jason Morgan’s intricate and interesting set design works well for the three plays. Autrey’s lighting is strikingly effective, always evoking the right mood. Lauren Morgan’s costumes are professional and sumptuous in their attention to detail and creativity." M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

" Thanks to Lauren Morgan's costuming (which is a strong point of all three segments) and some effective wigs, two pairs of actors who do not resemble one another offstage seem to be almost as identical as the script calls for them to be." Punch Shaw, Star-Telegram, August 14, 2010

 

"Stolen Shakespeare Guild pulls the silly and serious together for a tasty feast" M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

"The Condensed Shakespeare Festival is a great way to experience a bunch of Shakespeare or works that influenced Shakespeare with only half the dramatic calories.  In other words, they’ve cut out all the boring stuff and kept the action." Clyde Berry, Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN 8/15/10  

 

Lauren Morgan shines as Antigone’s frightened sister Ismene, bringing profundity and pathos to a role usually considered secondary. " M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"DeBorde stalks and menaces convincingly as a stubborn blowhard, showing impressive emotional range. " M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"Brad DeBorde excels as Kreon, using is full stature and voice to stalk the space in a commanding fashion.  He exudes power, government, and authority and nicely debates his seemingly few options his narrow mindedness will allow. " Clyde Berry, Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN 8/15/10

 

"Kierstin Curtis is solid as Antigone, giving us a great mix of determination, stubbornness, and anxiety.  She makes difficult decisions and weighs her options well." Clyde Berry, Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN 8/15/10

 

"Allen Walker has a delightfully unexpected and creepy turn as Tieresias, and delivers a chilling monologue in the strongest staging of the piece. " Clyde Berry, Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN 8/15/10

 

"Kirk Corley brings a weighty reality to his role as the messenger. " Clyde Berry, Associate Theatre Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN 8/15/10

Medea

 

"Sasha Truman McGonnell, in the title role, does her Durangiest to turn the story of a spurned woman contemplating the murder of her own children into a 10-minute romp." M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"Durang and Wasserstein’s Medea ends the show with a farcical bang." M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010

 

"The Chorus (Jessica Colaw, Jessica Ward, and Celi Radillo) is a riot, with snippets of song and self-help/you-go-girl shout-outs." M. Lance Lusk, Theater Jones, August 15, 2010
