“Evidence Room’s staging of Don Carlos, Schiller’s 1787 historical tragedy, blows the dust off a seldom-revived classic. Most American audiences have never seen it (Verdi’s opera gets more mileage). It’s a fascinating, unstable work, and after one too many OK productions of Hamlet or somesuch, it’s an especially welcome theatrical tonic... It’s an uneven translation and an uneven 16-person ensemble, but director Bart DeLorenzo plays both like a fiddle. He favors speed and urgency without flattening out this zigzagging drama’s rhythms.” – Michael Phillips, Los Angeles Times

World premiere adaptation at the Evidence Room, June 2001
