Macbeth, Women’s Will

 

Macbeth, Macbeth, Woman’s Will

“Woman’s Will’s no frills Macbeth packs the thrills…there is a real magic between Weak and Mbele-Mbong,who plays Lady Macbeth… a remarkably evocative and emotionally satisfying production.”

Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times

 


Viola, Twelfth Night, North Bay Shakespeare Festival

Viola, Twelfth Night, North Bay Shakespeare Festival

“… the shipwrecked Viola, strongly played by Valerie Weak”

“This is a wonderful cast with fine performances across the board. Nearly every exit receives an ovation and every entrance a delight. Weak’s thoughtful rendering of Viola/Cesario makes her {as much} the watchful conscience of this play”

“This is some of the most haunting, powerful, funny and engaging North Bay Shakespeare performed in recent memory. Director and cast were either born to it, achieved it or had it thrust upon them – whatever the case, this is one great “Night.”

Mark Langton, Marin Independent Journal

Claire, Proof, Pacific Alliance

“Valerie Weak’s Claire brings a different energy into the house. Elegant, purposeful and unsentimental, she has little patience with her sister’s confusions.

Charles Brousse, Marin Independent Journal

Helena in Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare at Stinson/Shakespeare a Firenze

“Also well worth noting is a remarkable comic turn by Valerie Weak as Helena. Also seen in Proof as the protagonist’s sister, her mathematician was a restrained, dignified performance and now we see just how much she held back. She is one to watch.”

Mark Langton, Marin Independent Journal

“Weak’s nuanced performance is evocative of the appeal of West Wing’s Allison Janney (both actors impress as tall females, vulnerable and forthright).

Jeff Kaliss, Commuter Times

Emilia, Comedy of Errors, SF Shakespeare Festival

LeBeau/Silvius, As You Like It, Woman’s Will

”Valerie Weak is exceptionally funny as a French fop and a smitten rube”

Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Jeffrey in Queer Theory, Impact Theater

“Weimer and Weak, sharing the role of Jeff, are both quite funny”

Chad Jones, Oakland Tribune

“Valerie Weak does commendable work as the professor’s female side”

Richard Dodds, Bay Area Reporter

Detective Holden, The Colour of Justice, TheatreFIRST

“The testimony contains its own resonant drama, evocatively rendered by Valerie Weak (as a confused cop)”

Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Sonya in Uncle Vanya, Holy Theater

“Valerie Weak is especially good as a halting and love-struck Sonya”

Michael Scott Moore, SF Weekly
