MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

“Overall, this Much Ado is really not about nothing, for there is a genuine something there. There is performance and production of high caliber; a story that constantly amuses and at times generates gales of laughter, while always maintaining a tender heart; and there is the satisfaction of things coming to an end in accordance with the behaviors and moral fiber of the characters we have come to know…a masterful telling of a timeless and sharply entertaining tale.”

“[Tarah] Flanagan and [Christopher] Gerson have been with the Great River festival for 9 and 11 seasons, respectively, and this production might be their finest work together.”

GLASS MENAGERIE

“A lovely production of The Glass Menagerie is the perfect complement to Shakespearean tragedy and comedy this summer at the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona.”

ROMEO AND JULIET

“Great River Shakespeare Festival has staged this Romeo and Juliet with such propulsive energy, strong character development, technical craft, and sense of urgency, that I found myself loving not only the production, but the play…I have come to have very high expectations of Great River Shakespeare Festival’s work. This Romeo and Juliet exceeds even those, and is one the best productions yet from this essential fount of classic theater.”
