Yet when all is said and done, this is Walcutt’s show. His Richard is cheerfully, gleefully corrupt, yet also suitably choleric, the fire of hatred burning openly in his face. He brims with energy so boundless, it drives this fascinating and always entertaining historical tale.
Eric Marchese – OC Register
For this 2012 season opener at Shakespeare Orange County, theatre, film, and television veteran John Walcutt is absolute perfection in the title role.

Even the slight character confusion inherent in this play (and perhaps not helped with the double casting) is a minor factor in an overall satisfying production.
