Antony and Cleopatra
Ithaca Shakespeare Company

“...[T]wo key characters were not only distinct but marvelously acted: NYC-based Andrew Ryan Perry as Antony and Will DeVary as ambitious Octavian, the new Caesar. Both men inhabited their roles thoroughly, in every gesture and expression; the struggle between these two historical titans truly came alive. Their conviction was so powerful that they carried the action...” - Barbara Adams, Ithaca Times

Henry V
Kentucky Shakespeare Festival

“And while we don’t expect to take the French Dauphin seriously, I can’t remember him ever being as funny as Will DeVary’s skilled buffoonery here.” - Keith Waits, Arts Louisville

"Meanwhile, the members of the French royal court....dismiss [Henry] as a serious threat in a delicious scene played with breezy confidence by…Will DeVary as the Dauphin (whose preoccupation with his horse is just one of the delights of this play)." - Marty Rosen, LEO Weekly

Everybody
Ithaca College Theatre Arts

“In one delightful scene, Everybody enthusiastically embraces a friend he hasn’t seen in ages, rattling off predictable patter.” - Barbara Adams, Ithaca Times

Richard III
Commonwealth Theatre Center

“In the titular role, Will DeVary is engaging and downright likable from the very top of the show... His Richard is sneaky and manipulative, then boyishly giddy once he receives the crown, then floundering as he buckles under the pressure of a looming war...a ruler you can’t trust but find yourself rooting for all the same.”

- Kate Barry, Arts Louisville 

"Will DeVary’s approach to Richard was cunningly crafted to create an unusually intimate bond with a ruthless man.”       

- Marty Rosen, LEO Weekly

Henry VI, Part 3
Commonwealth Theatre Center

“The villainy, and no small portion of the laughs, comes from the rise of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, the misshapen figure destined to be the infamous Richard III. Will DeVary attacks the role with relish, and director Robertson does something intriguing by guiding the performance into a deliberate overemphasis on the cliché of the twisted body expressing the twisted soul. Yet, in two moments where Richard is entirely alone onstage, with no 'audience', the physical deformities become much less pronounced, indicating that the cliché is itself a performance, and that Richard is most certainly playing the long game.... Robertson draws strong, insightful work from most of his principals. Besides DeVary’s risk-taking and forceful turn as Richard...” -Keith Waits, Arts Louisville
