THE MANDRAKE is open! And we've been running in repertory with ROMEO & JULIET (featuring the same cast of 9 actors) for more than a week.
Our notices for both shows have been very good. Rachel Beecher, for DC Metro Theatre Arts calls our MANDRAKE "a humorous theatrical home run." Rebecca Rendell, for Talkin' Broadway calls it "a laugh-out-loud funny and downright dirty evening of theater."
Review for ROMEO & JULIET have been just as good. Jim Rutter, of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls it "a superbly acted production," with "phenomenal performances from the entire cast." Kelli Curtin, for Theatre Sensation, states that ours is "an exceptional production of the show."
Finally, Mark Cofta, reviewing the repertory as a whole, calls MANDRAKE "Inspired lunacy," and says that "witnessing this capable ensemble perform two demanding classics," is a feat that is, "a credit to not only the cast, but also to Alexander Burns, the director of both plays."
The Repertory runs through, at least, November 8th! You can check out the rep schedule and tickets sales here, at Quintessence's website, and a sample of Shawn May's production photos of THE MANDRAKE are below.
