“Wolpe brilliantly owns the stage.”
- The New Current, U.K. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"Hearing that Lisa Wolpe was bringing her critically acclaimed show Shakespeare & The Alchemy of Gender to The Rose Playhouse intrigued me... The first words from her mouth are the immortal words of Hamlet and his infamous soliloquy and in that moment the audience is not just captured but are transfixed…"
“Lisa Wolpe is her own woman and joyfully speaks her mind, but her greatest legacy will undoubtedly be her creative vision and determination to create a platform and a voice for women, minorities and now the growing trans community in theatre. ”
“…contains some of the best Shakespeare performances I have seen. The play pays homage to her father, telling the man’s story and how he affected her life…”
“Definitely a must-see for anyone wanting to experience the work of one of the most notable proponents of cross-gender casting.”
“In her show she inhabited shifting realms of thought and myriad niches of human emotion. Such a joy and nourishment to see and hear Shakespeare played so truthfully and fully.”
“Ms. Wolpe knows how to tell stories, personal and Shakespearean, and she does so with power and panache. ”
“an engaging, heartrending, satisfying time in the theatre.”
“unexpectedly gut-wrenching, fascinating, thought-provoking, and in fact transcendent”

“A brilliant portrait of a murderer, with a
supernatural sizzle & a serious gender flip...”
The Alchemy of Gender is my autobiographical solo show, which I’ve toured to fabulous reviews from L.A. to London and through twenty other cities. In it I play Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock, and other great male characters.
