Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
The opening performance of this show was sold out and deservedly so.
This vibrant staging of Shakespeare’s The Tempest features polished, mature performances by a very youthful company. And to be clear, this is not a group of kids simply reciting carefully memorized lines. These actors have clearly done the work and study required to give full expression to the meaning of the bard’s words and depth of personality to the characters.
In addition to featuring some great physical comedy and emotionally heated exchanges between characters, this show is a visual treat, as the company is turned out in some of the most beautifully crafted costumes you’ll see on any stage. Fresh and creative with careful attention to detail, this is a production of “most excellent fancy.”
