“Taming” News


Good to see ya, Internet!



I just finished playing Petruchio in “The Taming of the Shrew” with Vermont Shakespeare Festival. Here are some reviews, and then some videos!




“Dean Linnard … proved a brilliant and imaginative comic actor, mixing outrageous braggadocio with a touch of the pathetic.”


Jim Lowe, Times Argus




“Dean Linnard, as Petruchio, carves ideas out of air and makes the words ring with dazzling clarity. He unlocks Shakespeare’s language with bold movement that is riveting in its economy. Whether landing a joke or stewing as the butt of one, Linnard lifts every scene with his energy. And his Petruchio is a master of manspreading.”


Alex Brown, Seven Days
