"What becomes obvious in this staging is how Shakespeare intentionally lifts you into a play promising to be a rhetoric-driven tragedy and then hits you in the very next scene with gut-busting clowns engaging in pun-filled wordplay."
"Allison Glenzer is cast as Adriana, and we eagerly imagine what this actress, locally famous for her crazy clowns and lusty wenches, will do with the scorned wife of Antipholus of Ephesus. But we never imagined this: a seriously dramatic reading of the part, her jokes delivered with bittersweet comic effect... I've seen this actress soar in many dramatic roles, including Emilia in Othello, the Countess in All's Well That End's Well, and the Jailor's Daughter in The Two Noble Kinsmen: We can add Adriana in Comedy of Errors to that list."
"[A] comic farce with a dramatic arc wrapped inside a three-layer love story: you become invested at the beginning, you laugh throughout, and you are fulfilled at the end."
