PAT MUSICK certified reviewer June 18, 2013
If you have any love for the bard, or even if you don't, do not miss this production. The cast is amazing with some of the fastest quick changes I've ever seen, hilarious twists on well known characters, and unbelievably clever writing that mixes the absurd with the revered. I laughed so much I was only able to get to my car and get home! The Spolin Players heartily endorse King Phycus and all it's characters and wonderfully funny bits. Don't miss this one!... full review

A fabulously funny evening of theater! The actors do a marvelous job of becoming many, many different hilarious characters, zipping through lightning fast costume changes and drawing from a huge palette of comedic accents and voice impediments. So much comedic talent on one stage is a delight NOT TO BE MISSED. Whether you are a Shakespeare devotee- or not, you will be laughing very, very, hard. Do come! Then get all your friends and come again!!... full review

I had the pleasure of seeing Shakespeare's " King Phycus opening day. Which was a nice treat to get a wonderful sunny Saturday started in L.A. Each actor does a fantactic job. The ability to juggle with so many different story lines and characters was amazing. The comedic timing of each actor is impeccable, and their acting chops are on point. The whole play is full of love, betrayal and humor all balled in one. It's a good play. That will have you laughing the whole time. You wont regret it. ... full review

"King Phycus" was vibrant, polished, and laugh-out-loud funny. The troop (do we still call them troops? troupes?) ...of actors were relentlessly good: subtle nuances, big death-scenes, hopping in unison while spouting verse, costume changes, accent changes, fight choreography, victorian conflicts, love, death, betrayal, ghosts, that nurse costume(!)... This show was a spectacle; expertly crafted and easily enjoyed. ... full review
MORNA MURPHY MARTELL certified reviewer June 22, 2013
The cast were all excellent and clearly right for performing (or goofing around with) Shakespeare's works. Having directed and/or performed in the plays they spoofed, I really got a kick out of the mix-ups and zany way of blending the plays without causing too much confusion. Especially loved Hamlet & Juliet, Richard III, poor old King Lear and the scheming Romans. The Thriller finale was a bonus! Congrats to All.

This is a hilarious little show! I thought the comedic timing was perfect and especially loved the fact that all the actors played numerous characters which they pulled off with ease and speed. Highly recommended if you love Shakespeare and like poking fun at him!... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2013
A wonderfully engaging mash-up of Shakespeare characters by an accomplished and entertaining ensemble of performers. It had a definite ensemble feel to the evening - continuity of style and intent on telling the story first and foremost. Kudos to the cast and the production staff/director. This was the highlight for me of the Fringe, at least so far!... full review
KATHLEEN REED certified reviewer June 23, 2013
This show deserves to be a contender for best of Fringe! The ensemble of King Phycus gives its audience a raucous, silly, unabashedly iambic time. This show will please both the hardcore Shakespeare-quothing dork and the unassuming groundling. If you only see one more show at the festival, make it King Phycus! ... full review
