2015 Arizona Daily
Star Mac Awards

Read all about it here.
Best Play, Drama: Hamlet
“The Rogue Theatre’s sparse Hamlet was riveting and thrilling.”
Best Play, Drama:Waiting for Godot
“We sometimes think Waiting for Godot is a tragedy. Then a comedy. Then tragedy again.
Whatever you classify it, The Rogue Theatre’s production of the Samuel Beckett play teased us and thrilled us.”
Best Comedy: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
“...given all the wit and weight the Tom Stoppard play deserves.”
Best Actor: David Morden in Hamlet
“David Morden’s buffoonish Polonius...provided some much needed laughter.”
Best Actress: Patty Gallagher in The Merchant of Venice
“Patty Gallagher’s turn as Portia... was often transcendent.”
Best Actress: Kathryn Kellner Brown in Hamlet
“majestic and heartbreaking in her role of Gertrude...
The agony and sometimes-clueless side of Hamlet’s mother were palpable in her hands.”
Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Hamlet
“Cynthia Meier’s fast-moving Hamlet caressed the language and made the complex story clear.”
Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Waiting for Godot
“Meier also wowed us with her direction of The Rogue’s Waiting for Godot.”
Best Actor: Matt Bowdren in Hamlet
“He was haunting and haunted, tender and consumed with revenge.
His Hamlet made us see the Shakespeare play with fresh eyes.”

The book is wonderful; this adaptation makes it dance off the page and on to the stage.
