Quotes & Highlights

“Ms. Packer glows with the energy of a quick, bright mind discovering and enjoying itself. Her transformations in style remind us of how richly mutable Shakespeare is in performance.” -The New York Times
“Drawing on her lifetime of acting in and directing Shakespeare’s plays, Packer combines the performance of scenes with the discussion of themes to create a dazzling and illuminating piece of work. For anyone who cares about women, Shakespeare, or especially women in Shakespeare, it’s not to be missed.” -Boston Globe
“NPR Audio talks with Tina Packer about “:”Women of Will": _


“There may be more men in the plays of Shakespeare. Many more. But the Bard’s women pack a punch. Tina Packer founder of Shakespeare & Company, the renowned theater group in Lenox, Mass., and now one of America’s premier Shakespeareans has been playing and directing Shakespeare’s women for 40 years. She’s learned them from the inside out Kate and Cleopatra, Rosalind and Desdemona, Lady Macbeth and Juliet, Cordelia and Marina, and much more and put Shakespeare’s feminine side on stage. Now she’s brought the female roles together in her work “Women of Will.” It’s powerful." —Tom Ashbrook, NPR
