BWW Review:  THE KING'S SPEECH at DC's National Theatre, from the Perspective of Some Photo BWW Review: THE KING'S SPEECH at DC's National Theatre, from the Perspective of Someone Who Stutters
by Jennifer Perry - Feb 13, 2020

As a person who stutters, I may have identified with Bertie's struggles in a more personal way than many theatergoers and appreciated that his voice - his true voice - could be heard and not stifled. However, at the end of the day, don't we all just want to be heard and seen and valued for who we are?
