"An intense and deeply satisfying version of Shakespeare's tragedy...The small space works well in compelling the audience to share very intimately the characters’ suffering and passions. And oh, such passions...Mitler sticks faithfully to Shakespeare’s original text, with judicious trims, in his adaptation...It's all terrific theatre...It's a good bet that at every performance, these scenes—and indeed the entire play—will be acted with riveting intensity."

"Director Christopher Bayes and actor Steven Epp in the lead role of Truffaldino make this commedia dell'arte work, which was written by Carlo Goldoni in the 1740s, come alive with hilarious, rowdy energy...The play has been larded with up-to-the-minute jokes...Epp is supremely gifted with physical comedy — a.k.a. clowning — which is a good thing since he can't make faces to be funny...Bayes is also an expert on clowning...The cast is full of talented comic actors."
