Entertaining, Absorbing, Epic, Great staging, Intense

See it if You want to learn more about Shakespeare's less-done works, also if you like immersive theatre.

Don't see it if You can't handle too much violence, there is a lot of added fighting. Also, if you have trouble paying intimate attention to dense plays.

Theater Pizzazz
November 18th, 2016

"Mitch McCoy’s fight direction is one of the most extensive pieces of fight choreography I’ve yet to see in a Shakespeare play. At times this was as much movement performance as play...The play is a constant surge of energy that makes some necessary dialog-rich sections of the play (in which we get to sit again) almost a welcome relief...Played well, and this production most certainly is, 'Coriolanus' rolls out in a glorious dramatic arc."

Theater In The Now
November 25th, 2016

"Omri Kadim did a nice job adapting this version and it was a smart choice to make the show about the violence. The show doesn’t have a lot of character development or change of tempo...The emphasis was on the physicality in the first act and it felt like the second act was less focused on. With that said, the company of actors did a fabulous job at playing their characters, wrangling the audience, and dealing with the incredible physicality this show demanded of them."
