DOUG OLIPHANT certified reviewer June 23, 2014
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
COCO SCHNEIDER certified reviewer June 23, 2014
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

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. Please read the rest of the review at 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

This play was a find! The level of acting and production for a small venue play definitely went above and beyond. The energy of the actors while maintaining two characters, each very physical roles was truly amazing. The play was very entertaining and humorous and the use of clothing changes to signify the role changes was done creatively. I would happily see it again if I had the chance!... full review

Twelfth Night is an absolutely fantastic production. The cast and crew have distilled Shakespeare's brilliant comedy down to its most engaging and hilarious essence. All the performances are top notch, and the staging is incredibly creative, elevating the show to an original and highly inspired rendering of the classic comedy. There are absolutely no academic pretentious here; this production of Twelfth Night is accessible to anyone who likes to laugh. Seriously. Anyone. See this show!... full review

A truly phenomenal adaptation of Twelfth Night. An incredibly funny, accessible, and well-acted production! I have already seen it twice and would go a third time. That's how much I loved this show. The staging was hilarious and creative and the acting was fantastic. Worth the trip just for the INCREDIBLE live music accompanist. Go go go!... full review
