Quotes & Highlights
“Simplicity is magical in Orlando. That’s as true for Sarah Ruhl’s lovingly crafted adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s time-bending, gender-shifting novel as it is for Woolf’s mesmerizing prose. In the TheatreFirst Orlando … the simple directness of staging and acting work an incremental wonder all their own.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“Ruhl’s adaptation beautifully captures the spare eloquence of Woolf’s language from the novel … Director Domenique Lozano gives the play a graceful and sparkling staging with a strong cast.” —KQED
“Admirers of Woolf and Ruhl will be very happy with this production, as will anybody looking for a good time, lots of laughter, and something to think about.” —theatrestorm.com
“(Domenique) Lozano has directed the show in a fast-paced combination of dance and slapstick … and the half-dozen in the cast perform all that’s demanded of them beautifully for the astoundingly rapid hour-and-45-minutes the show plays.” —San Jose Mercury News
A magical night of theatre directed by TheatreFirst, ACT and Cal Shakes Associate Artist, Domenique Lozano (ACT’s A Christmas Carol, TheatreFirst’s The Drawer Boy) and produced by TheatreFirst, one of the Bay Area’s preeminent new works companies.
Starring Stephanie DeMott of the American Conservatory Theatre as Orlando.
