Reviews for Kathryn

"The Amish Project"...Stahl credited the production’s success to Metzger’s acting, as well to the lighting and sound cues used to signal each character.
- Kevin C. Vestal, The Chautauquan Daily
Kathryn Metzger brings wonderful presence to her roles - endearing and earnest as Thaisa, and gravelly and coarse as Boult.
- Zelda Knapp, A Work UnFinishing
"The Philadelphia Story"...In the linchpin role of Tracy, Kathryn Metzger has both the arch rectitude and the sliver of anarchic spirit that Katherine Hepburn displayed on stage and screen.
- Christine Howey, Rave and Pan
"The Taming of the Shrew" is amazing! ...David & Kathryn create a compelling, entertaining dance between their characters, and it’s great theater. It was fun (from where I sat) to hear people laughing through the whole show...

It’s also one of the Bard’s most polarizing works, with many of Will’s fans having a love/hate relationship with the play. As critics have pointed out, reading and interpreting Pericles is not always smooth sailing... Read More
