“And in the title role, which is often merely incidental, Mr. Page impresses with the elegance of his delivery and the austere dignity of his character. To him falls the duty of presiding over the extraordinary series of revelations in the final scene. His queen a cruel conniver! Iachimo’s perfidy exposed! His long-lost sons — found! The cross-dressed Imogen revealed! Mr. Page’s Cymbeline reacts with a persuasive blend of shock, sorrow, gratitude and, most affectingly, mercy at the strange turns that fortune has taken.”

-The New York Times

“Best of all is the incomparable Patrick Page, whose organ-toned performance as King Cymbeline supplies a classical ballast that keeps the show from floating off into the night.”

-The Wall Street Journal

“Everyone has moments to shine, from old Shakespeare hands like Patrick Page and Kate Burton to actors you don’t usually associate with Shakespeare at all, like Raúl Esparza as Iachimo.”

“Patrick Page as both Cymbeline and Philario, Posthumus’ host while the latter is in exile in Italy, is outstanding as well. Page is such a powerful actor who so often does over-the-top roles as in “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” that it’s a pleasure to see all that strength used with subtlety.”

-Gay City News

“At no point do the characterizations pall–not Page’s or Rabe’s, Linklater’s, Burton’s, Esparza’s”

“Patrick Page (Cymbeline) is eminently kingly and a pleasure to hear. The King’s density is beautifully manifest; the actor’s comic timing superb.”

-Woman Around Town

“Patrick Page, with his resonant bass-baritone and hearty wit, is ideally cast as the king, and also appears as Philario, Posthumus’s host in Rome.”
