The Shakespeare Authorship Question has never been so funny or so relevant. Ten minutes of selected scenes from Keir Cutler's new hit monologue, "Shakespeare Crackpot." Filmed live at the 2014 Montreal Fringe Festival. Directed by TJ Dawe. www.keircutler.com
"I'm always a good listener when in the presence of a fine storyteller and I would gladly listen to any of Dr Cutler's seminars. What followed was a thoughtful and sarcastic debate between a teacher and a student about the authorship of William Shakespeare's works. With a (bully) pulpit, a bench, a few books, a bust of Shakespeare and only one quick sip of water during his 50-minute performance, Professor Cutler gave us an amazing lesson: shouldn't we all think for ourselves?" The Charlebois Post. Bruno Lajeuness
"Shakespeare Crackpot is the latest monologue by Fringe Festival staple Keir Cutler. . . . Cutler, right off the top, is very engaging, well-spoken and well researched. . . . Cutler's biting criticism of the world of academia is insightfully hilarious and is very tongue in cheek." www.onstageottawa.com Matthew Champ
"Keir Cutler is a FRINGE veteran, and while he's known for his Shakespeare-themed efforts, this one feels a little different. Retelling Cutler's own experiences as a literature student, and incorporating a healthy dose of Montreal content, this show is less about the Shakespeare controversy itself as it is an intriguing study of the world of academia. Cutler is, as always, a lively and endearing performer, and by the time the show reaches its thought-provoking conclusion, he's won the whole room over. Highly recommended." www.bloodyunderated.com by Churcher White
"Cutler's lecture is brilliant and beautifully constructed. He is particularly delightful portraying the professors and defenders of academic nonsense. If you have never seen one of Keir Cutler's rants, do go see this one. It rocks Shakespeare and delightfully mocks all those lecturers and professors who stank up our academic lives." The Rover by Anna Fuerstenberg
"Cutler delivers an eye-opening, passionate performance in this self-confessional, documentary-style show. Literary conspiracy has never been so entertaining as what's offered in "Shakespeare Crackpot." Stuart Nulman, mtltimes.ca
