Mackenzie Kyle (Hedda) was fastastic. Bravo to her! The rest of the cast did an impressive job also. The set design was marvelous. Another great show by the artists of Raven Theater. Stop reading this review and buy tickets already. ;-)

Hedda was great - a young Faye Dunnaway - great job of presenting an attitude - both soft and very hard. The rest of the cast were all very believable in their roles,... continued

My husband and I attended Saturday night. Our first visit to the Raven. It was superb - the setting was great, the actors were perfectly cast, and the play well done. MacKenzie Kyle deserves many kudos for her portrayal of Hedda.

Really well done. Revising my opinion of Ibsen upwards (Court Theater's Wild Duck didn't do it for me)

Hedda nicely realized.

Ecellent drama. Surprise ending. Intimate size theater. Limited free parking. Don't miss it. Hedda Gabler role: she is charming, cunning with an evil streak.

The play was excellent. The lead actress was so good. The story line was rife with despair and conniving. I must say, I have not enjoyed a play this much in a long time. Even the venue was perfect. Not a bad seat in the house.

The plot seemed to come apart towards the end. Overall, it was
a pleasant play experience, and I couldn't get enough of Mackenzie
Kyle.

I thought this play was terrific and wouild highly recommend it. This is Ravens best effort since Steetcar which won so many awards. I am sure this drama will also win many awards. It certainly deserves it. Supercritic
