The reviews are in for the current run of “Richard II” at Seattle Shakespeare Company, featuring David Foubert as Henry Bolingbroke. Critics of all ages are responding to this powerful production and David’s work. Some highlights:

Mischa Berson, Seattle Times (Jan 17, 2014):

“But overall, the acting is, on its own terms, impeccable — with impressive work too from excellent David Foubert as Bolingbroke.”

Drama in the Hood (Jan 12, 2014):

“Seattle’s Shakespeare Company has put together a stellar production that does everything right… David Foubert makes his Seattle Shakespeare Company debut as Bolingbroke and skillfully plays out the character’s arc as he moves from exile to the most powerful man in England.”

Rachel Gallagher, City Arts Magazine (Jan 13, 2014):

“…The cast is strong… There often isn’t an easy path to answer all the questions that arise, but a well-acted, emotionally moving production always helps lead the way.”

Bethany Boyd, Teen Tix (Jan 14, 2014):

“…Seattle Shakespeare Company’s production of Richard II is one of the most moving Shakespearean plays I’ve ever seen.”

Jay Irwin, BroadwayWorld.com (January 12, 2014):

“Foubert manages a quite engaging future king and gives a wonderful arc with his character.”
