This company always does a good job but this was exceptional. I don't know why this play isn't better known. Great fun.

Really fun, engrossing production of a piece I've avoided until now. Glad I read all the good reviews and went. My guest and I really enjoyed this highly theatrical staging. Lovely facility, great seats, plenty of parking - hurray!

This was actually my second time to see the play. On my first visit I missed the first half hour because the play had not started at their usual 8:00 o'clock starting time but at 7:30. This time I saw the whole thing. Noise Within's...continued

This was a great theater experience. Both the acting and staging were great. Very imaginative. We read a synopsis of the play before going which I think always helps with Shakespeare.

Solid performance of a strange and fascinating play. Late Shakespeare mixes fairy tale, melodrama, tragedy, comedy, and the kitchen sink in stories that end with deeply human reunions, reconciliations, and mutual forgiveness. A Noise Within...continued

acting was excellent and interpretations of play were also very good. rivaled the plays I have seen at the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon for which I paid much more.

Magical fantasy production of what is possibly Shakespeare's most sloppily written play. That's not a backhanded compliment, just that they truly made a silk purse out of a sow's ear. See the production; it's enchanting.

Fun.....tastic! Truly a playful play. Actors were superb & it was a joy to be in such a cozy theatre that you felt part of the play & not a separate audience.

Highly recommended, especially for those like myself who have known Pericles the least of any of the Shakespeare plays. Clearly written as spectacle, this late play is a sweeping tale of court intrigue, lost love, and destiny, set in the ancient...continued

Outstanding theater in the round experience. Very imaginatively staged, and performed brilliantly by all. One of the rarest of Shakespeare's plays, well worth seeing while you can!

This is a first-rate theater company. Pericles is not staged often, so it was quite a treat to see this show. Although I didn't like the director's choice to double cast some of the roles (it took me out of the moment when somebody else became...continued
