News about Geoffrey’s fight directing.

Feature: A Day in the Life of Geoffrey Kent

Twenty years after his arrival at the Denver Center, Geoff Kent is as busy as any kid ever was trying to break into the business. In short, he continues to practice pretty much every theatre discipline he ever learned – at the same time.

Review: Colorado Shakespeare Festival brings deft touch to ‘Cymbeline’

As the villainous Iachimo, Kent could have easily gone the Iago route, playing the character as a straightforward baddie. Instead, Kent infuses Iachimo with comedy and no small amount of heart, a touch that brings the heart of the show to the fore.

Review: CSF’S Troilus & Cressida turns Problem Play into a Pleasure

Geoffrey Kent, who also choreographed the fights, embodies interesting contradictions in this role: You sense the powerful fighter beneath the louche, sloppy appearance that Achilles first presents; later, you sympathize with his genuine agony at the death of Patroclus — it feels deeper than anything you’ve seen from Troilus or Cressida — and then within minutes you’re despising him for his sleazy tactics.

Review: CSF successfully updates ‘Wives of Windsor’

As the arrogant and blustering French Doctor Caius, Geoffrey Kent is a comedic highlight, delivering lines in an overstated accent worthy of Monty Python and drawing on his full range of skills as CSF’s resident fight coordinator during a duel featuring golf clubs and a bible.

Review: Taming of the Shrew

Shakes patrons know the earnest side of Kent — as Lucius in “Titus Andronicus” and Mercutio in “Romeo and Juliet” — so it’s a treat to see how funny he can be. Kent’s Petruchio seems more bemused than angry at his hellion of a bride, which makes Gibson’s growling and stomping and pummeling even funnier.

Review: Aurora Fox makes quite the mythical splash

Geoffrey Kent directs with a keen sense of sensuality (what an adonis that Cyex is) and wit that is quick becoming a trademark of the well-regarded actor-fight director as he helms more productions.
