"This version of Shakespeare’s raucous, fun, if slightly problematic comedy has received a twist: a modern-day New Orleans makeover...The actors command every inch of the stage...Part screwball comedy, part moral conundrum; an exciting romp from start to finish...Elpenord, Raphael, and Ivory Aquino lead a solid, multitalented cast in this fresh take on a seldom-performed classic, and laughter abounds from beginning to end."

"Director Hamilton Clancy brings life to one of Shakepeare’s darker comedies with a remarkable cast and colorful concept…Lukas Raphael is cunning and unscrupulous as Angelo. Ivory Aquino captures your heart as Isabella. Together they are beguiling and generate startling intrigue through Shakespeare’s complex scenes. Emanuel Elpernord commands the Bryant Park stage as Duke Vincentio. Michael William Bernstein is captivating and entertaining as Lucio."
