A Midsummer Night's Dream, by Shakespeare
very well done
Saturday, July 10, 2004
5.0
I know that it's a little late (about a week) but I haven't had time to write a review and I think this play certainly warrants one. Excellent job everyone! Every performer did a braeth taking job, and you could see their dedication as soon as they stepped on stage. As far as the vision for the show went, I thought it was a little inconsistent. I felt that if it was to be set in modern times, then every part should have some sense of that time period, not just the costumes.
Some of my personal favorites, David Olsen was remarkable as bottom. He's skinny, and baby faced, but for some reason (don't ask me why) that added to the comedy of his role. Mark Shaw was an excellent Puck. I have seen this production many times in many different cities, and Mr. Shaw has to be in the top three Pucks I have ever seen. Zach Safford was an very strong Lysander, and his manipulation of the language was very proffessional, and quite unexpected. I myself have never views Lysander as a "horn dog" but it fit remarkably. Jessica Marks as Titania was perhaps the most surprising of the cast. She commanded the language in a very mature way, and her physical movements added to it. It was evident that she deliberately attempted to seperate her character physically and vocally, who was a fairy, from that of the "humans" of the piece. And such a lovely girl. All in all just an excellent job, I hope I see everyone at Kudzu again.
