The event was very good, and well done. A problematic play handled in
an understandable, funny and provocative way.
Quotes & Highlights
“Peer Gynt invites a series of laudatory adjectives: ambitious, kaleidoscopic, meticulous, smart, bold, imaginative and at times very funny.” —_Kansas City Star _
“visually arresting!” —Johnson County Sun
“Delightfully hyper!” —KC Metro
“For believers in magic and the power of love…this Peer Gynt is a vision to behold”_ —The Pitch_
Join the world’s most famous wanderer, Peer Gynt, as he dreams, charms and swindles his way through life in an exhilarating quest for fame and fortune.
Experimental director David Schweizer brings this epic fantasy to life with only five actors. These agile, hilarious and versatile performers transform themselves from cowboys to button-molders, from the Egyptian Sphinx to a three-headed troll on a stage full of inventive surprises.
Satisfy your wanderlust in this wild, funny and picaresque journey.
