2018Shanson’s soliloquies are superbly crafted, and her “leave all the rest to me” sounds memorably chilling.

2018Esther Shanson is a wonderfully understated Lady Macbeth, conveying a quiet and duplicitous menace

2018As Lady Macbeth [Shanson] really shines – absolutely the driving force,... inspiring some sympathy as her sleepwalking betrays her guilt.
