By William Shakespeare
Directed by Lisa A. Tromovitch
Valley Shakespeare Festival
Retzlaff Estate Winery, Livermore, California
with Michael Barr, Gwyneth Richards, Patrick Alparone, Richard Aiello, Lee Simmons & Elissa Beth Stebbins
"Director Lisa A. Tromovitch has delivered a streamlined version of the show. Knapp and Richards are particularly impressive in the show, creating memorable characters and a nice chemistry in their scenes together."
"The most intimate of the Bay Area's outdoor Shakespeare offerings, Valley Shakes is also one of the most exciting...the key roles are all solid... Knapp is a beguiling Helena, and Barr is a loathsome Parrolles..."
