Fiasco Theater's
CYMBELINE
By William Shakespeare

"The most truly enchanting CYMBELINE I've seen. Exquisite."
- Ben Brantley, New York Times

"A playful and inspired work of art...not only revived but honored." -- The New Yorker

"The Fiasco Company brings joyful music, playful inventiveness and just an air-kiss of irony to Shakespeare's mock-epic. They remind us what theater, at its simplest and most powerful, is really for: the alchemical thrill of watching an entire world conjured into being out of sheer wit and will. A small masterpiece."
- Scott Brown, New York Magazine

"Cymbeline is transformed into a treat that celebrates Shakespeare and theater itself. No excuses for missing it this time!" - Michael Glitz, Huffington Post

"Fresh, frisky, jammed with playful theatricality and music to match. Besides being talented actors, they're terrific musicians!" - NY Daily News

"Fiasco Theater's charming production makes crystal-clear the endlessly convoluted plot developments of the Bard's late-period romance. They youthful performers have a winning playfulness." - Frank Scheck, New York Post

"Sincere with the dialogue and merry of heart, a young ensemble of actors adeptly and joyously handles acting, playing musical instruments and singing harmoniously. A genuinely lighthearted, playful production."
- Associated Press

"A marvelously acted, highly imaginative triumph - one of the three best Shakespeare's that I've seen in decades in New York." - National Review

"A frolicsome form of poor theater on an bare stage, Fiasco Theater gleefully undertake poisoning, beheading, cross-dressing and betrayal. The excitement is infectious!"
- Alexis Soloski, The Village Voice
