Quotes & Highlights

“This is the way Shakespeare should be, and so often isn’t. What a delight to see it here, now, in its full glory.”—_"DC Metro Theatre Arts":http://www.dcmetrotheaterarts.com/2013/11/02/king-john-at-wsc-avant-bard-by-catherine-artois/  _(Five Star Review)
“Highly recommended — They don’t perform Shakespeare’s King John much any more, and that’s a damn shame. When it’s done right – as it is in WSC Avant Bard’s excellent production – it is exciting, provocative, and uproariously funny.”—DC Theatre Scene 
“[WSC Avant Bard]’s quite delightful production of this clever and powerful seldom-seen play is a welcome relief from endless Romeo and Juliet’s and all the other rehashed standbys…theatre aficionados take note: this is a rare and excellent performance to add to your collection.”—MD Theatre Guide
