Shakespeareances Review for 2014 MFA Play Festival

The beginning of April saw Mary Baldwin College’s Rogue Shakespeare MFA Company performing all five of their plays in repertory.  While not a company member, I acted and played music in Dr. Faustus and Fuente Ovejuna while acting as Musical Director for Richard II.  Prolific Shakespeare reviewer Eric Minton made the trip down for the festival and shares his insights into the Shakespeare and Performance offerings.

While not my best press cutting, I was tickled to be acknowledged for providing, “some cheeky fun as two of the devils, guest artists Scott Campbell and Ian A. Charles appear to her as lewdly masked male strippers.”  I was glad to arrange the music and choreography for this “textually supported” routine, but hope that the word cheeky wasn’t an intentional play on words.
