Cymbeline by William Shakespeare

A Noise Within

A Noise Within, October 2012


"CRITIC'S CHOICE  After seeing director Bart DeLorenzo’s lively staging of “Cymbeline” at A Noise Within, one wonders why Shakespeare’s rollicking romance is not more frequently produced." -- F. Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times


"Bart DeLorenzo attacks this dramaturgical nightmare with a vigorous interpretation that takes its cue from the risibly unwieldy climactic scene, with its usually ludicrous plethora of revelations and reversals, and works backward, logically locating his inspiration in a dominantly comic mode. When the play is so staged with deliberate hindsight, the tragic elements become foibles rather than flaws, and while there are many variations on (and deviations from) the comedy, the play then makes sense as a vision of encompassing compassion toward human frailties.."  --- Myron Meisel, Hollywood Reporter
