PREVIOUS REVIEWS: The last time this play was directed by the Artistic Director was in South Africa, where the production met with universal acclaim:
Grocott’s Mail incited their readers that the production was “not to be missed.”
Die Burger (the country’s national Afrikaans newspaper) enthusiastically said that “Paige Newmark . . . succeeds masterfully in his task of making “Twelfth Night” approachable . . . The production as a whole is ideal for the younger set who think that Shakespeare is only for old folks.”
The National Arts Festival’s newspaper Cue excitedly proclaimed that it was “A delightful adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s best comedies. Extremely enjoyable.”
Brian Pearce in Journal of the Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa relished that “This was an elegant and stylish production. . . . The farcical scenes were really amusing, delighting the audience, who happily entered into the spirit of the play. . . . This was a production that displayed many original insights, [and] was extremely well received by the audience.”
Rhodos reviewed the production, delighting in the “Standing ovations” and how “[This] one of a kind production . . . kept audiences glued to their seats.” “The finest directorial skills and emerging acting talent assured a highly cultural and entertaining evening in the theatre.”
The Artistic Director just had a radio interview with the lovely Dita Jevons on Radio Fremantle. To listen to our discussion about TWELFTH NIGHT production, go to http://www.radiofremantle.com/thuarchives.html and then CLICK onto the ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT show at 10:00am
