Image from Shakespeare's Actresses in America

“A gifted and charismatic performer, and a highly-entertaining performance.” - Boston Phoenix

"Watching Rebekah Maggor, I was entranced. Her mastery of the language and physicality was illuminating. I found myself wishing that many other actors had her skills."
- Actress Kathleen Turner

This one-woman tour-de-force brings to life the vocal and physical styles of the finest actresses America has known. Evoking stage stars Sarah Bernhardt, Ellen Terry, and Margaret Webster, to film stars Elizabeth Taylor and Claire Danes, Rebekah Maggor’s beautifully crafted show reveals the varied interpretations of Shakespeare’s heroines and explores how women have shaped our understanding of the world’s greatest playwright.

Approximate Running Time: 65 minutes with no intermission
