What I liked

The superb cast. Performing with few props and virtually no set, the actors riveted your attention with stunning interpretations of Shakespeare’s characters. The outstanding direction and interpretation kept entrances and exits crisp and timely, while the entire ensemble maintained a high energy throughout the three-hour play. This is the director’s and actor’s craft at its finest.

What I didn't like

Opening Night provided a few challenges. Stage lights didn’t work, forcing the company to perform under neon ceiling fixtures and a lone chandelier.

My overall impression

The Fringe’s “Twelfth Night” is an excellent interpretation of Shakespeare’s play, performed without elaborate sets, period costumes or magical lighting and sound. The power on stage comes entirely from the work of its actors whose words and actions transform a bare-bones dance studio into Illyria.
