Critical Praise for "Twelfth Night"

  

Stuart Duncan for centraljersey.com’s Princeton Packet Time Off entertainments section writes:


"Twelfth Night" is being presented by ActorsNET of Bucks County through March 26, this is one of the finest productions of any work in many years. It showcases a stunning veteran company, superb direction, and the kind of confident presentation that comes from polished actors completely trusting each other on stage.


Moreover, the comedy contains some of the Bard's best-loved characters: Sir Toby Belch; Sir Andrew Aguecheek; the sinister Malvolio, and Feste the clown. And there is a veteran actor in each of those roles. George Hartpence brings years of acting to the role of Sir Toby (he also co-directed and handled the set design). Dale Simon also co-directed, and these two have found small pieces of fun that are often missed.

Critical Praise for "An Inspector Calls"

  

centraljersey.com’s Anthony Stoeckert says:


"An Inspector Calls" spends a lot of time with the title character asking questions of the other characters. This typically isn't my favorite format for a play, but that may be because I had never seen it done with the tension and drama that ActorsNET of Bucks County brings to its stellar production of J.B. Priestley's 1945 play.


This is a play that won't work without the right cast, and director James Cordingley has assembled a wonderful group of actors for this production.


Hartpence and Thompson do fine work as the parents. Hartpence plays Arthur with a sense of entitlement, even a touch of superiority, but he remains likable, and comes off as a man trying to do best by his family. Thompson is formal, nearly royal, as Sybil, but the veneer is broken when Sybil's role in the death is revealed.

Critical Praise for "Sleuth"

  

centraljersey.com’s Anthony Stoeckert says in the Princeton Packet TimeOff entertainment section:


Regardless of how well you know the play, or what you figure out if you don't know it, this is well worth seeing because "Sleuth" is fun even if you know it, and because the acting is great.   Hartpence is fantastic as Andrew.    He carries the swagger of a successful, somewhat cocky, man, who enjoys having power over this younger, somewhat intimidated man.  Hartpence does a lot of talking and is in full command of his lines, filling the theater with a voice that is near royal. He also gets plenty of laughs, both with zingers, and physical comedy.
