Mine is Yours' production of Twelfth Night was filled with delicious witty banter, physical comedy, role-reversals, on-stage quick changes, and a contagious feel-good energy all fused together by Liz Eldridge's live original score and beautiful voice. Mary Ellen Schneider is a joy to watch on stage, as always, and the rest of the company does great work jumping between characters and never letting our attention waiver. Shakespeare fit for a Fringe, go see this show!... full review

This was AMAZING. Everything everything Shakespeare should be. Fast, tight, physical, clever, brilliant and HILARIOUS. What an incredible ensemble. I absolutely loved the double casting and all of the brilliant ways the director played with it and the actors executed it. INCREDIBLE music from the most soulful singer ever, and literally did not stop laughing the entire time. Not to mention the best yellow stockings I've ever seen. Please do not miss this. GO SEE IT.... full review

This show was fabulous!! What a highly entertaining and thought provoking production of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." It was accessible for anyone regardless of previous experience with Shakespeare's work which is so wonderful to watch the actors bring the text to life in a way that an audience can connect with and relate to. I hope to see more from this theater company in the future! Must see!... full review

To do the Bard justice you don't need to have lavish sets or costumes. You need good ideas, fresh takes, and actors who are unafraid of the mountain of text before them. That is exactly what Yours is Mine's Twelfth Night had. It had great new ways of playing classical text. It had beautiful music. It had you paying attention to every end line. This show was hilarious. I found myself laughing hysterically throughout. While it's a piece I am incredibly familiar with, I felt as though I was hearing a lot of the text for the first time. A fantastic letter scene, and an ingenious idea to have a Maria/Antonio played by the same person and Toby/Sebastian played by the same person. So great! If you're looking for something like that TV show ma... full review

I saw the original production in January, and this is a fun, self-aware version of Twelfth Night with clever double casting and lots of humor. Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's more accessible comedies, so you don't need to be well-versed in verse to enjoy this one. Being incredibly familiar with this show (having seen it many times and in it once), this is one of my favorite adaptations. Everyone in it is having such a good time that you will, too. Go see!... full review

I am happy to report that not only does "Mine is Yours" have a solid connection with the Bard's text, but that they stage it in such a way that it breathes fresh life into his words. You would think cramming a five act play into 90 minutes would result in pure, frenetic chaos, but they have such a tight grip on the reign that you still get the lion's share of tender character beats with Viola/Orsino and Sir Toby/Andrew/Maria hijinks. They found a creative way of double-casting which involves the (mostly) ever-present Fool, and results in some genius moments of physicality especially toward the end. I would be amiss not to mention the contribution that the musical stylings of Liz Eldridge adds to the show, which sets the tone right from the b... full review

Mine Is Yours Theatre Company's production of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night, Or What You Will..." is good, very good, more than that, it's excellent. As one viewer of the January mounting said, "I was blown away... Spectacular." I echo this. This is a good adaptation to catch and Friday 6/27 at 5pm and Saturday 6/28 at 9:30pm are your remaining chances; it's $10 well spent.

This show was absolutely delightful. It's rare to hear Shakespeare spoken so well, and the production is hilarious and very creative. The actors are all fantastic, and the music is completely gorgeous. I'm planning to see it again before Fringe ends! ... full review

We loved this show so much we've bought tickets to go again - it's funny, it's creative, and the ENTIRE cast is outstanding. Liz Eldridge's hauntingly beautiful voice and her accordian, kazoo and ukelele paces the show brilliantly. Each actor has a double role - and the staging of the character changes is something to behold. You'll be sorry if you miss it.... full review

A wonderful production! My 11 year old daughter and I found this show online yesterday afternoon and decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. It was the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for a young theater fan. The choreography and staging with the support of live music made the play extremely accessible for someone new to the Bard. We especially liked the way the actors played multiple characters and the creative way they changed costume on stage in the middle of scenes. The most clever scene was the brawl between Sir Toby and Sebastian, but our favorite scene had to be when Sir Andrew, Toby and Maria spied on Malvolio as he read the forged letter. We laughed out loud many time through out the performance. Toby, Sir Andrew and Ma... full review
