Henry IV Part 1
Mistress Quickly, Worcester
“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.” – Drama In the Hood
For All That
I played the roles of Muranne, mother to brothers Andrew and Donald, as well as Alice, a fiesty woman living in Glasgow and giving shelter to conscientious objectors.
“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!
