For 'Henry V', Shakespeare & Company
The climactic battle of Agincourt… takes shape onstage is a visceral image of war’s two faces: an experience that is simultaneously collective and deeply individual for those who do the fighting. That scene was choreographed by cast member Sarah Jeanette Taylor, who also delivers a heartfelt portrayal of Nell Quickly.
- The Boston Globe
Sarah Jeanette Taylor ups the multiple-character ante by also switching between genders with no loss of credibility as she makes her way through a half-dozen roles.
Sarah Jeanette Taylor provides two invaluable contributions: her role as Mistress Quickly, who movingly describes the offstage death of John Falstaff, and her swirling, vivid choreography for the battle of Agincourt.
- The Times Union
Actor Sarah Jeanette Taylor adds another fine arrow to her growing professional quiver.
- The Berkshire Edge
I enjoyed Sarah Jeanette Taylor anytime she was on stage. In addition to delighting us on stage, Taylor choreographed the battle scene.… the battle scene is extraordinary.
- Berkshire Family Focus
Actress Taylor developed a majestically beautiful, choreographed ballet for the climactic battle at Agincourt… representing the ultimate carnage of the battle. It’s a stunning and show-stopping moment.
A five star seasoned team of actors an actresses…The result is a collage of authentic Shakespeare.
- Did You Weekend
The three women’s roles here – Nell Quickly (Taylor), Alice (Jadow), and Princess Katharine (Calkins) – are delightful ones, but it is wonderful to see these actresses, and Galvin, portray the impulsive, physical masculinity of the Southampton traitors and the frustrated French nobility champing at the bit before the Battle of Agincourt. Taylor has deftly choreographed the scene of the Agincourt battle. This really is Shakespeare & Company, as a Company, doing what they do best.
- Berkshire on Stage
As the versatile, black-clad chorus who narrate and move the set pieces and move into and out of small roles, Croy, Taylor, Galvin, Jadow, and Jaeger add immeasurably to the pleasures of this production….The battle of Agincourt as staged by Sarah Jeanette Taylor comes as close to a Martha Graham experience as you will find anywhere today.

‘Taylor is lovely in this work. She is adept at slight comedy and wonderful in the more emotional moments of the play within the play. She never oversteps the boundaries of radio acting when she is at the mic and never underplays her real emotions. I adored her.’ - Edge Boston
