…Michael Place’s breathtaking performance is so good and so vibrant and so energetic that he becomes the center of attention every time he steps on stage … His Mercutio is a big performance but it always feels REAL
-Michael Strangeways, Seattle Gay Scene

Michael Place is stunning as the rakish Mercutio… he also infused a laser focus to his being making his every intention clear.
-Jay Irwin –

“That WET actors Michael Place and Lathrop Walker are up to the considerable demands of this Cain-and-Abel rematch is no surprise. WET’s company boasts some of Seattle’s best, and most versatile, young actors, who can shine even with dicey material. And this novel piece really lets them rip.”
-Misha Berson, The Seattle Times

Place is so good it’s hard to describe. You watch him and you think: This is the reason for theater. What he’s doing couldn’t be done in any other medium.”
-Christopher Frizelle, The Stranger

“Michael Place shows off some incredible strength of will and conviction as Karen’s fiancé Joe.” – Jay Irwin,

“This “Much Ado” also has an ardent, dashing and rashly judging lover in Seattle native and WET Theatre alum Michael Place…”
Misha Berson, The Seattle Times
