Critics and audiences alike have had some really lovely things to say about Candida at Washington Stage Guild. 

"Whitmer gets to the core of the play’s most complex character, James, displaying his flaws alongside his integrity."

- Ian Thal, Washington City Paper 

"Whitmer as Morell…shows a touching fondness for his on and off stage wife, Emilie Faith Thompson as Candida, which added an especially sweet quality to the production…the production is lively, wildly amusing, and nothing less than charming." 

- Sophie Williams, Broadway World DC 

"The men have really wonderful chemistry and play off each other to hysterical effect...This is a charming, vibrant production that is true to its roots as one of Shaw’s “Plays Pleasant” even as it surprises with refreshing modernity" 

- Mary Anne Johnson, MD Theatre Guide 

CANDIDA MUST CLOSE OCTOBER 20th. Head to Washington Stage Guild for tickets.

The unity of theatre artist and theatre career is precarious and fraught with uncertainty. The unity of actor and acting is sacred and I accept the responsibility of my craft with honor and humility.
