“Directed by Michigan Shakespeare Festival artistic director Janice L. Blixt, this production is equal parts campy, sadistic, heartfelt and, most of all, fun.” – Alex Huntsberger, New City Stage
Violence Designer Libby Beyreis has crafted some excellent combat scenes…I commend Babes with Blades for tackling one of Shakespeare’s most difficult and bloody plays with such enthusiasm and humor” – Drew Wancket, Chicago Stage Standard
“A superb rendition…Amy E.Harmon is terrifying and heartbreaking in the title role…As Aaron, Diana Coates is mesmerizing.” – Christine Malcom, Edge Chicago
“Amy E. Harmon stars as the titular Roman general. She brings a fine, bug-eyed severity to the role, making Titus’ descent from zealotry to madness merely a matter of degrees. Kimberly Logan meanwhile gives Harmon a worthy foil as the Goth Queen Tamora and Janice Kulka offers both sweetness and a sly intelligence as Titus’ beloved but (very) ill-fated daughter Lavinia” – Alex Huntsberger, New City Stage
“What most invigorates this all-female adaptation is the conceptual savvy brought by guest director Janice L. Blixt….You may see loftier interpretations of this horror-movie family drama, but never one as immediately accessible” – Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times
