"[You’ve] never seen [Hamlet] as intimate and visceral as this”

Brendan Kiley, The Seattle Times

"This is never Shakespeare at arm’s length. One can forget just how potent the feelings of betrayal, depression and madness are in Hamlet, given our familiarity with stoic declarations about sleeping, perchance to dream. Here, those declarations come from the gut, wildly and animatedly."

- Dusty Somers, City Arts Magazine

"Director Julia Sears very ambitiously coordinated two different productions of the play to run simultaneously throughout the mansion... Sears uses this directorial technique the perfect amount....For this truly unique production of one of the most popular dramas by one of the most popular playwrights, I give Horse in Motion's Hamlet a dazzled A."

- Amelia Reynolds, Broadway World Seattle

"This may sound like a merely clever concept, but in performance it was riveting from start to finish, reinforcing what is at stake in Hamlet with unforgettable theatrical power."

- Thomas May Memeteria

"Director Julia Sears (who co-conceived the worthy project with Maggie Moore) fuses her troops into a cohesive force, executing dance interludes with muscular grace and grit. It would be wrong not to thank them for their service." 

- David Cote, The Village Voice

"One of the most engaging, genuine, provocative, and humbling pieces of theater I’ve seen in years... it shocks you instantly from complacency with the force of its power. It leaves you changed." 

Rachel Kambury, NYC Veterans Alliance  

[Bullet Catchers] highlights women’s deep desire to serve, mirroring attitudes that have been encouraged in men since before our country’s founding. Given the current political climate, Bullet Catchers is a necessary performance.

- Teresa Fazio, Consequence Magazine

"The actors give an athletic performance to fill the space with physicality. Nothing looks accidental in a show this meticulous. Julia Sears has demanded discipline from her troops and every one of them carries their rifle with expert precision." 

- Robert Price, The Reviews Hub

"Inventive staging by director Julia Sears" 

- Asya Danilova, Theatre Is Easy
