Thanks to the Gregory Awards nominators!
Come see the Gregory Awards on October 22. Please cheer loudly for me so there’s not that awkward silence. Thank you!
“As Menenius Agrippa, Kate Witt perfectly conveys the dark, comedic loneliness of the sensible person living in a chaotic world. She delivers Shakespeare as if she were a character on The Office, and it’s great”
Rich Smith, The Stranger
“Kate Witt as the patrician Menenius steals every scene she is in. There is such humor and wit in her performance and she carries an amazing natural presence and charisma onstage. She is an utter delight to watch.”
The Horror Honeys
“Kate Witt was exceptional as Roman politician Agrippa, bringing just the right amount of “Hilary-esque” grit to her role. (Note to Seattle theaters: cast Kate Witt in more shows!)”
Michael Strangeways, Seattle Gay Scene
“Special honors go out to Kate Witt who portrays both the bawdy innkeeper Mistress Quickly and the bitter rebel Worcester. The dual roles could not be more different in nature; Witt nails them both bringing out entirely different acting chops in the process.”
Henry IV Part 1 Review Drama In the Hood
“Finally, in a performance that is wise, wry and utterly honest, Kate Witt as Laurie’s colleague Nancy Gordon simply sparkles”
Third review by David Edward Hughes
“Strategically drawn supporting characters illuminate Prof. Jameson’s deficits like Scrooge’s ghosts: a colleague battling cancer (the marvelously earthbound Kate Witt)…”
Third review by Margaret Friedman
“Kate Witt’s honesty and intensity keep her Holly well-clear of being a sitcom cliché friend…”
Next Fall review by David Edward Hughes
“Gunderson makes Emilie show more sides than a Dungeons and Dragons die, and Witt delivers. On stage for the entire play (and even the intermission; during the break Witt stays in character, writing formulas and paging through books), she projects an unwavering intellect and a fierce pride, but also a need for companionship and, sometimes, a yearning for a simpler life. Witt has full command of the character.”
Emile review by Michael Ligot
“ArtsWest had a winner a year ago with their production of “Emilie” by Lauren Gunderson…headlined by two powerful performances from Kate Witt and Nick DeSantis. It was intellectually clever theater with a lot of passion.”
Strangie Award for Emilie!
