Standout performances come from Jane May as one of the most nuanced and truly regal Shakespearean Kings you could ask for...
— New York Theatre Review
Jane May plays the ravished newlywed Laurencia with a combination of fierce adult strength and soft teenage vulnerability that would be the envy of many

It is impossible to isolate outstanding performances in such a strong piece of ensemble acting where every performer excels and also supports the rest of the company. Jane May and Kelly Strandemo encapsulate a female strength as they rally the women, maenad-like, to tear the commander to pieces. The strength of every member of the Ducdame Ensemble makes them a company to watch. I cannot wait to see what they have to offer next.
