Critical Response

Johnny Lee Davenport brings wisdom and pain to the role of Escalus, the Duke’s adviser, and frightening brawn to the royal executioner.”
—Elizabeth Maupin, Orlando Sentinel (October 21, 2004)

“Dancing around the poor management is earnest Escalus (Johnny Lee Davenport), a man who sees the problem but is powerless to solve anything. “
—Carl F. Gauze, Archikulture Digest, No. 43
