Reviews

“this sprightly show is a summer tonic … Illyria is a refreshing romp.”
- Misha Berson, The Seattle Times

“a musical with clever, wisecracking wordplay, a fantastic set of songs, and an all-star cast… Illyria will transport you—much like the twins Viola and Sebastian—to a land of whimsy and wit.”
- Emma S., TeenTix

“I can’t think of a better date night show, or a better escape from everyday life to a time and place where the unlikely is ordinary, love is both inexplicable and inevitable, and there is music beneath every choice in our lives.”
- Jerry Kraft, SeattleActor.com

“so good I could hardly believe it… The singing voices of the actors blend beautifully and the acting is superb throughout… And the words, oh the words! So clever with their unexpected rhymes and crafty meanings.”
- Nancy Worssam, Arts Stage – Seattle Rage

“a heartwarming, fun, tuneful way to see a Shakespeare play… This is a feel-good evening you can bring any family members or friends to. Highest recommendation.”
- Miryam Gordon, SGN

“There are many reasons to see Taproot Theatre’s zesty production of Illyria … a stellar cast … hilarious roles … wacky plot … every cast member is picture-perfect.”
- Alice Kaderlan, FeetFirst
