Chicago Reader- Somewhat Recommended

"...By the second act, it all starts to feel more like an educational exercise than a work of theater, but deft comedic performances help keep it moving, particularly Kade Cox as a decadent, unpredictable, nefarious King James I."

Around The Town Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...Powerful, poetic, and polished, "Equivocation" is a rare gem. This six-character play being performed by the Idle Muse Theatre Company (IMTC) excels, excites, and elucidates. Bill Cain's smart and intricately constructed script will ensure that William Shagspeare (to use his contemporaries' spelling) is remembered as the man himself and not just by his literary works"

The Fourth Walsh- Highly Recommended

"...EQUIVOCATION is solid storytelling, directing and acting! The only wrinkle for me was the length. Even though the program says two hours and fifteen minutes, this EQUIVOCATION is thirty minutes more than announced. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed EQUIVOCATION for its very human and robust portrayal of Shakespeare at a crossroads in his career and life."

Rescripted- Recommended

"...The performances are particularly strong; six actors play over thirty characters, often differentiating with nothing but their voices and postures, often several times throughout the same scene. This could have easily devolved into farce, but itís done with such deliberateness and attention to detail that we can always keep track of who is playing whom."
