Really well done. Strong performances throughout, cast handled the verse very well. Madison Dahm as Viola/Cesario was excellent, beautifully played with light and shade and very likable. Julie Lanctot did a great Olivia, and the scenes between them worked great. Shayna Maci Warner as Feste was endearing and had an amazing singing voice, coupled with nice guitar play. Matt McLaughlin’s Toby Belch was very well done, as was Kelsey Kato’s Andrew Aguecheek. Their scenes worked really well, and Kelsey’s “I was adored once too” contrasted beautifully with the comedy. Ian Runge’s performance as Malvolio was also impressive. The rest of the cast all gave memorable performances, it was staged intimately and they really included the audience throughout the play, which added to the experience. They also contrasted the original text nicely with modern props and ‘interludes’. Great job by Will Block. All and all a great show.
What I didn't like
Can’t say i didn’t like it, but it may cause issues for some people that they did the full text, which ran for about 3 hours. Depending on the time of the show, it can end quite late. I however appreciated seeing it start to finish and found it impressive how the cast handled it.
My overall impression
Really well done. Strong performances throughout, cast handled the verse very well. They performed the full text, intimately staged, with modern ‘interludes’ and props. Great show.
