LOCH NESS  The Rev Theater Company   Book and Lyrics by A.D. Penedo, Music by Marshall Pailet   Directed by Marshall Pailet   Choreography by Misha Shields

"The production includes creative ensemble storytelling and intriguing puppetry, beautifully choreographed by Misha Shields...[her choreography] helps the monster come to life in the most innovative way...The Rev Theatre Company's production of Loch Ness, A New Musical is one of the most creative, unique, and chilling musicals I have seen in a long time. The production is fresh, new, and exciting. It is a visionary and artistic masterpiece."

- Broadway World, Natasha Ashley (LOCH NESS, The Rev)

"All the stops have been pulled out to bring “Loch Ness” to life, and the efforts of the production team are breathtaking. Choreographer Misha Shields articulates Nessie the monster with ensemble members tumbling and contorting to mimic the undulations of an underwater creature."

-, Linda Lowen (LOCH NESS, The Rev)

"Mr. Greisler's staging and Misha Shields's choreography are woven together so tightly and imaginatively that you can't be sure at any given moment who did what."
- Wall Street Journal, Terry Teachout (ONCE, Buck's County Playhouse)

"With the abundant help of choreographer Misha Shields and a company whose individual and choral voices are angelic, Greisler creates marvelous musical sequences in which Shields’ geometric patterning is often as exciting as the singing is lovely or spirited in proper turns."
-  Princeton Info, Neal Zoren (ONCE, Bucks County Playhouse)

"Misha Shields contemporary choreography is lovely."
- phindie, Joshua Herren (ONCE, Buck's County Playhouse)

"Exuberantly directed by Travis Greisler and choreographed by Misha Shields..."
- Out In Jersey, Allen Neuner (ONCE, Bucks County Playhouse)

"...a wordless scene that is unsettling in all the right ways, a sequence of fiercely tormented Morris dancing (choreography is by Misha Shields) that occurs in the immediate aftermath of a major plot development and registers as a wrenchingly physical expression of conflicting emotions. It’s the single most powerful scene in “Witch,” and, as it happens, it involves one of the four supporting characters."

- The Boston Globe, Don Aucoin, (WITCH, The Huntington Theatre)
