JOURNEY'S END 

 Alley Theatre & Westport Country Playhouse

"Shanahan expertly depicts Stanhope's alcohol-induced outbursts...the Alley Theatre's cinematic production... is magnificent in every way. Without any qualification whatever, it ranks as one of their finest achievements."

-- Houston Press

 

"In particular, Mark Shanahan's Captain Stanhope is heart-breaking, as he subtly changes from intrepid leader to pitiful drunk." 

-- New York Theatre Scene

"Mark Shanahan is an ideal Stanhope, suggesting charisma and dashing looks stressed to the breaking point." -- The Houston Chronicle

 

"Mark Shanahan offers the right balance, too, as he teeters near — but not over — the edge of collapse as Captain Stanhope, the troop’s charismatic leader, battling his own demons." -- Variety

 

"A stellar production Shanahan, Black, Schrider, Campion, and Shropshire are the medal earners."  -- Theatermania

 

"A deeply affecting piece of ensemble acting... There is Captain Stanhope (Mark Shanahan), a vicar's son who drinks to excess and travels to Paris, rather than going home, when he is on leave." -- New York Times
