The School for Scandal (Actors’ Shakespeare Project)

Inspired actress Paula Plum gave a directing master class with this rollicking revival of the Richard Brinsley Sheridan gem.”


12/22/16 — Theater Feature: Best Stage Productions of 2016The ArtsFuse

Hamlet by William Shakespeare. Directed by Doug Lockwood. Presented by Actors’ Shakespeare Project.

Doug Lockwood’s conceit for this production, staged in the sanctuary of Boston’s historic Church of the Covenant, is that Hamlet, via a virtuoso performance by Omar Robinson, realizes that he is a fictitious character, fated to replay his final days night after night, without variation, for eternity. The character is fully aware of how his author has deftly fused comic and tragic elements. Robinson was joined by a uniformly superb cast. The production is also notable for another reason: months after the fact, I still cannot get over the gorgeousness of Deb Sullivan’s lighting design.”

“Doug Lockwood, Richard II at Actors’ Shakespeare Project

It is no easy task to find the right balance between entitled self-absorption and heartbreaking vulnerability, but that is exactly what Lockwood managed in his portrayal of the deposed king. His stunning delivery of Richard’s divine prose was masterful.”
