Critical Response

“There are also a couple of new faces in this large cast, including that of Johnny Lee Davenport, an acting teacher at Boston’s Emerson College, who made a fine Edward IV, Richard’s ailing brother.”
—Channing Gray, The Providence Journal (February 1, 2008)

“The current king, Edward IV (Johnny Lee Davenport), is the first domino to fall in Richard’s deadly game.  Davenport brings weight to the role, his first production with Trinity.  I hope we see more of Mr. Davenport in the future.”
—Randy Rice, (February 3, 2008)

“With Richard occupying such a dominant role in the play, other characters struggle to emerge from his long shadow, though the actors’ performances are solid [including] Davenport’s booming, commanding Edward.”
—Ben Leubsdorf, Brown Daily Herald, (February 11, 2008)
