“Women of Will: The Overview” is Tina Packer’s innovative single-performance journey through Shakespeare’s attitudes toward women, seen through the eyes of his most famous female creations.
Part masterclass / part performance: Funny, fierce, deep and accessible, Women of Will is the bonus content to Shakespeare's plays that you have been searching for. Join master Shakespearean actor/dramaturg, Tina Packer, as she deconstructs and conjures William Shakespeare's most famous female characters. Ace actor Nigel Gore plays the Romeo to Ms. Packer's Juliet, the Petruchio to her Kate.
Lisa Kennedy of The Denver Post said Packer and her onstage partner, Nigel Gore, “have an … astonishing chemistry as they inhabit Shakespeare’s creations.”
Packer’s exploration of Shakespeare’s women played to rave reviews in Prague and Off-Broadway in 2012. Ben Brantley of The New York Times said the overview is “marvelous … it’s not just poetry in motion, it’s thought made flesh. … Subliminally erotic (and) commandingly eloquent.”
