Fantastic acting, lovely costumes, fascinating story very well-told.
Walking Shadow never disappoints.

My only complaint was that there was a floor light shining in my eyes at times because I was sitting on far house left.

The play combines what makes live theatre like no other experience.

The script had depth, good conversation, wit, developed characters, and topics worth consideration.

The production had great live music, wonderful mostly period...continued

Absolutely delicious! Moving, funny, entertaining on many levels. Well acted, great technical elements (still swooning over the costuming). Will probably go see it again.

Quotes & Highlights

“a big and very enjoyable play full of chewy intellectual questions… Director John Heimbuch understands this play and its setting well… Vaughn digs into [his] meaty role with an actor’s talons and claws. He creates a Kynaston of effete and supreme arrogance… He and Froiland bristle with realism as Othello and Desdemona.”  —Star Tribune
“Walking Shadow Theatre Company is offering a smart local premiere of this tale, which, though set in the early 1600s, has plenty to say to contemporary audiences about gender roles, power and the passions that drive us… Wade A. Vaughn deftly trods a fine line between the actor who plays women with masterful affectation and the off-stage man whose life is significantly more nuanced.” —Pioneer Press
