REVIEWS ARE IN FOR KING LEAR!

What a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful production! Some blurbs on the show and me...

Often achingly beautiful, this is a production that speaks through the ages to our time. Brazzle is brilliant as the conniving Edmund...
-Star Tribune
 
The show is stunning. I have never experienced a performance that was so powerful and gruesome.
-Play Off the Page
 
...A high-quality production of one of Shakespeare’s most powerful plays. It is an evening well worth enjoying. Thomas Brazzle’s portrayal of Edmund, the bastard son of the Duke of Gloucester, is particularly strong.
-The Mac Weekly
 
...a captivating and heart-breaking portrayal of Shakespeare’s tragedy...Thomas Brazzle was powerful as Edmund...
-Aisle Say Twin Cities
 
This is a great King Lear for any season; in our current season it is essential...as evil half-brother Edmund, Thomas Brazzle impresses with his malevolent swagger and rationalization of evil...
-Talkin' Broadway
 
Brazzle has a gift for riveting villainous monologues, making his onstage appearances always something to look forward to.
-Twin Cities Arts Reader
 
Beloved bastard Edmund is portrayed by Thomas Brazzle, whose hand gestures allow even the least trained in Shakespearean dialect to grasp the character’s plan for revenge.
-MN Daily
 
The cast doesn’t have a weak link, from the utterly commanding Brazzle...
-City Pages
 
...worth seeing...Stealing the show was the brash, scene-chewing Edmund, played with relish by Thomas Brazzle in his Guthrie debut (I’m certain we’ll be seeing more from him in the years to come)
-PhenoMNal Twin Cities
