for a previous production "Topics that called for farce, drama, or satire were reduced to feel-good images and naïve dichotomies…A generation that came of age with Stewart’s 'Daily Show' expects to be given some information when a news story is lampooned.

for a previous production "A strikingly dramatic text, one that demands the power and versatility of an actor of Evett’s calibre.

He effortlessly shifts from the bawdy clowning of the Italian jester to miming the agonizing strains of a seaman’s labors…The production’s design elements and storytelling are nimbly integrated."
