"[This] sharply staged, slightly salty comedy is a remarkable 400 years fresh. The story is just intricate enough to keep you guessing, charged throughout with dynamic, fine-tuned performances, ready wit, and a handful of clever, tuneful passages."
"Wide-eyed Calabrese embodies cute Cardenio with playful zeal, delightfully bolstered by Knapp’s depiction of the innocent-but-determined and lovely Lucinda...imaginatively staged and designed with a solid cast of talented actors."
"A capable cast plays the tongue-in-cheek melodramatic qualities well as the script and lyrics pay delightful homage to Cervantes in mocking and celebrating the convoluted excesses of old-fashioned romance."
