Richard Reviewed

From the Lincoln Journal Star:

The play’s script is a delight to absorb . . . that is why it is so pleasing that the Flatwater Shakespeare Company is closing out its summer season under the stars with Shakespeare’s Richard III . . . because the power-hungry and incredibly evil Richard affords an actor the opportunity to craft a performance that – while taxing – can display a wealth of theatrical depth.

Brad Boesen [at first] calmly delivers an introspective portrayal of the black prince. Slowly and carefully, the actor [shifts] toward a more furious and manic level.

Solid performances also are delivered by Rob Burt (Duke of Clarence and Earl of Richmond), Judith Hart (Duchess of York), Sally Vandeberghe (Lady Anne), and Juanita Pat Rice (Queen Margaret) [and her] stately and stylish performance . . .

Dick Nielsen (Duke of Buckingham and 2nd Murderer) and George Hansen (Lord Hastings and Tyrell) offer sterling support.

[As the reviewer says:] Don’t miss this!

The remaining performances run Thursday–Sunday, September 21 and 25-28.

Call 473-2897 to reserve tickets.
