Critical Praise for "BARRYMORE"

Read the Central New Jersey - Princeton Packet review by Anthony Stoeckert.  (click the download link below to read the full review)

"Barrymore has its touching moments, but for the most part, the evening is lighthearted.   Mr. Hartpence is funny and charming, and commands the stage as this actor shares the story of his life and career."

Shakespeare's HAMLET for S`70


Critical Praise:

Stuart Duncan reviews for the Princeton Packet:

"...Hamlet by Shakespeare ‘70 at Kelsey Theatre on the campus of Mercer County Community College is a genuine theatrical delight. There’s plenty of revenge (no fewer than four dead bodies lying around at the final curtain); one of theater’s best ghosts, that being Hamlet’s father played beautifully by the veteran George Hartpence, and enough derring-do sword play to keep the most expert scholars on their toes for almost three hours."


The show’s cast includes Ray Fallon of Collingswood as Hamlet; Janet Quartarone of Flemington as Gertrude; Steve Lobis of Washington Crossing, Pa., as Claudius; John Fischer of Hamilton as Horatio; George Hartpence of Lambertville as the Ghost of Hamlet’s Father; Dale Simon of Flemington as Polonius; Jake Burbage of Jersey City as Laertes; Shannon McGovern of Scotch Plains as Ophelia; Michael Krahel of Hillsborough as Rosencrantz; Jim Bloss of Marlton as Guildenstern; Andrew Timmes of Lawrenceville as Osric; Robert-Alonzo Gray of Ewing as Marcellus/Fortinbras; Pat Rounds of Princeton as Player King; Amanda McCarther of Lawrenceville of Player Queen; Tom Curbishley of Lawrenceville as Player Prologue; Spencer Makow of Princeton as Francisco; Tim Kirk of Delran as Bernardo; and Matthew Cassidy of Morrisville, Pa., as the Gravedigger.

The ensemble features Tristan Curbishley of Lawrenceville, Vianna Fagel of Lambertville, Steven Munoz of Hopatcong, Brittany Rivera of Hamilton, and Jaclyn Wasneski of Hightstown.

The production team for “Hamlet” includes Director John F. Erath, Ph.D., Assistant Director Janet Quartarone, and Producer Curt Foxworth, with assistance from Kayla McLaughlin.  Lili Timmes and Gwyn Curbishley are the stage managers.

Critical Praise for "The Doctor's Dilemma"


centraljersey.com’s Anthony Stoeckert in TimeOff says:

“The Doctor’s Dilemma,” first performed in 1906, also has plenty of laughs.  George Hartpence plays Sir Ralph Bloomfield Bonington and is a riot as Bonington enthusiastically claims the key to medicine is to “stimulate the phagocytes!” 

The play also has some clever lines, such as Bonington saying surgeon Walpole has no intellect and that he’s “A mere surgeon. Wonderful operator, but after all, what is operating? Manual labor.”
