PERICLES at UTAH SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

Desiree Mee Jung…her charisma and charm make her a pleasure to watch in her scenes.

COMEDY OF ERRORS at UTAH SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

Desiree Mee Jung as Adriana is bewitching and humorous.

RICHARD III at UTAH SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

Queen Elizabeth (Desirée Mee Jung) is a powerhouse female character in this play, and Jung pulls no punches in her portrayal.  The commanding presence Mee Jung brings to the stage is a fascinating antithesis to Richard.  Her quick wit, even on the shortest of lines, drives a needling barb into Richard’s façade.

RICHARD III at UTAH SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

…the script gave Desirée Mee Jung the widest range of emotions, and Mee Jung capitalized on this to give a nuanced performance…

Utah Shakespeare Festival

Spending the next four months in beautiful Cedar City, Utah!

I have the privilege of playing Queen Elizabeth in Richard III, Adriana in Comedy of Errors, and Thaisa is Pericles all in rep. Looking forward to a Summer of Shakespeare performing on the gorgeous outdoor Engelstad Theatre.
