BWW Review: Shakespeare's Befuddling PERICLES Benefits from We Happy Few's Shameless Cast
by Sam Abney - May 21, 2018

As acknowledged by Director Kiernan McGowan's program note, Pericles is a hot mess of a show.

It's understandable why this play is rarely produced. As We Happy Few demonstrates, however, this show can still be a fun ride if your performers lean into the script's ridiculousness. (more...)

There is the dancing of the athletic McGee Maddox and the graceful Allison Walsh. (How many performers out there can claim true balletic chops, skill at acting and singing - and the aforementioned hotness?) And the word 'dazzling' seems to have been coined for Gershwin's music, generously ladled over the entire enterprise, and beautifully performed. (more...)
