Reviews

Critics

"Shaw...manages to create a rounded portrait of a woman whose expectations in life were never fully met, and who blames her ex-husband and her children for her disappointments." Theater reviewer Robert Viagas reviewing the world premiere  of William Considine's MORAL SUPPORT at The Medicine Show Theatre ArtsIndependent

As Mary (the mother) Cynthia Shaw was real and sympathetic. You want to believe her when Mary begs for attention, but doubts live forever and truth is subjective. Whatever she did, she pays for it in the end, and Ms. Shaw later reflects upon it with grace and understanding. Reviewer Jan Ewing in Hi! Drama for MORAL SUPPORT at Medicine Show Theatre

 

"The delightful Cynthia Shaw wonderfully captures the grandeur, egotism and pathos of Arkadina and Ranevskaya." 

Theater Reviewer, Darryl Reilly in www.Theaterscene.net in a review of MR. CHEKHOV AND MR. PORTER
