Stage Scene LA:
“one of Theatre Of NOTE’s most exhilarating hits in years”
“Under Christopher Johnson’s effervescent direction, there’s not a weak link in the cast of Theatre Of NOTErs”
“Most memorable of all are Vangsness’s splendidly spunky Marian/Robin/Old Man, Scher’s flamboyant, greedy, unexpectedly opposite-sex-oriented Prince John, Brady’s engagingly manly/womanly Will, and above all Marcks’s fabulously feisty, utterly adorable Alanna, whose pivotal scene opposite Brady earns best-of-show.”
“From his first literary appearance in the 1370s to 2010’s Russell Crowe big-screen starrer, Robin Hood has kept audiences captivated for centuries. Adam Szymkowicz’s gender-bending latest may well be the most entertaining of the lot.”
