"...This collaboration is one of the most adventurously conceived, bracingly executed theater works I’ve seen in a long time. At once edgy and ethereal, fraught and disarmingly funny, it conjures empathy by some surprising means, and it’s not to be missed." - Megan Grumbling, The Portland Phoenix

"One of the highlights of this summer's PortFringe — and hell, the last couple years of Portland theater — has been Bare Portland...They're super fun, and are some of those helping take the form to where it next needs to go." -Nick Schroeder, The Portland Phoenix

"...Brazenly experimental, genre-defying, wondrously disarming" - Megan Grumbling, The Portland Phoenix

Staging [Macbeth] as they did in a church served the story well, not only by surrounding the audience with the action but also in situating the spirit within Shakespeare’s work. Employing an all-woman cast has suggested new paths of interpretation to follow.

CATHEDRAL OF HORROR

"Bare Portland Theater mounts an intense and atmospheric four-player production of the tragedy, under the direction of Carmen-maria Mandley and James Patefield, in Portland’s exquisite St. Luke’s Cathedral, with staging rich in the uncanny and original music composed by Denis Nye. Sitting in the pews at a rehearsal last week, I had goosebumps." -Megan Grumbling, The Portland Phoenix
