"This production announced the arrival of Allison Glenzer as a true star...as Speed, she is truly transcendent, taking her place among the great performances we've seen over 40 years of Shakespeareancing. She creates a fully-fleshed character we genuinely care about...and she scores laughs on three levels: by telling the good jokes well, by telling the bad jokes with such knowing chutzpah we can't help laughing, and by insightful reading of and perfect timing with Speed's conversational dialogue."
"Benjamin Curns' performance as Launce illustrates another element of Shakespearean scripts: their improvisational flexibility. Launce shares the stage with Crab the dog, played in this performance by Tulip, a mixed-breed from the Augusta Dog Adoptions (ASC is partnering with the organization, offering up each Crab to the audience for adoption)...Tulip forces Curns' Launce to react to her, and Curns brings all of his Shakespearean improv skills to the role."
