Review from Mary Jennings

The event was very good, and well done. A problematic play handled in
an understandable, funny and provocative way.

Review from Robert

It was a boring narrative...the adaptation connection with the characters (though the actors tried very hard to creat some "drama")...I left at intermission!

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.

David Schweizer has been directing original theatre, performance and opera for more than 30 years. Favorite projects include La Jolla Playhouse’s Tobacco Road, off-Broadway’s Wintertime and Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori’s musical Caroline, or Change. He is currently preparing Tennessee Williams’ last full-length play, Of Masks Outrageous and Austere, for its world premiere production on Broadway next season.
