RYAN LISMAN certified reviewer June 10, 2019
Really excellent, Maud // The Madness very successfully adapts Tennyson's poem for the stage and delivers a very powerful performance. Reed Michael Campbell is amazing at taking the challenging text, finding the subtle nuances within it, and heightening the words to give them a very epic and profound quality. The direction was very smooth and cohesive, the set was rather gorgeous and used very effectively, further creating a sense of isolation that the character is haunted by. I really recommend Maud // The Madness. ... full review

An extremely thoughtful and well-designed adaptation of Tennyson's "Maud", director Parker Huseby and performer Reed Michael Campbell pull off a compelling rendering of psychology and, possibly, psychopathy. ... full review

This is a thoughtful production of challenging subject matter, which puts on full display the versatility of a talented young actor. Reed Michael Campbell is engaging to watch throughout, taming and humanizing Tennyson's poetry. It's well worth seeing.... full review

Friends and I have seen Reed M Campbell is two plays so far. And he is a brilliant actor! So expressive, loud and clear, and has given suburb performances in both plays we have seen so far! Cannot wait to see his next play! He really delivers his lines! I am very impressed by his acting on live stage! He pulls you in and you are in a trance by him! When I get back from the East Coast for July fourth week. We will go see his next Fringe Play! Do not want to miss it! So glad that by popular demand, they extended this next play past June so we can attend! Yippy! Go see anything that he does please! Sincerely, Jeff Wise Ask me about any of it on FBook! Cheers!... full review
HOWARD SCHMITT certified reviewer June 17, 2019
This adaptation of Tennyson's poem seems authentic in its intent to take us back to mid-Victorian England. Being Victorian, its cadence starts slowly and builds throughout the piece. After a few sequences we are taken in by what might be called the presentness of the past--eternal truths that transcend time and place. The adaptation and performance show a true understanding and appreciation of the vicissitudes of the lovelorn Victorian heart. But as we watch the piece we come to realize that this passionate 19th century young man, wallowing in the excess of lush Victorian verse, is not too different from today's young man who spends endless hours on the internet searching for his passions. To both, "desires" are illusive and unfulfilled.... full review
