ONLY FIVE PERFORMANCES LEFT TO SEE THIS MODERN CLASSIC!!
"Caselli and Martin’s script is so clean and accessible… By earning the audience’s rapt attention to its juicy, catastrophic plot and subtly insisting on the thematic undertones that make this myth a classic, the production should give a willing viewer food for thought that satiates well beyond the play’s end."
– Carolyn Hayes, The Rogue Critic
" Their writing is crisp and contemporary (but not too contemporary), and they succeed in making this 2,500-year-old epic tale as personal and accessible as it can be." – Ute Von Der Heyden, Lansing City Pulse.
"Go. That’s all that needs to be written about the production of Oedipus at Williamston Theater. Further words spill into the realm of superfluous. Calling it a "must-see," while accurate, cheapens the imperative with cliche. Simply, go."
– Bridgette M. Redman, EncoreMichigan.com
"John Manfredi holds the stage as Oedipus as we watch his kingly demeanor crumble in the face of agonizing revelations."
– Kate O’Neill, Lansing State Journal
"Oedipus is perfect, even before the last scenes leading to its dramatic, well-known conclusion."
– Jim Fordyce, MIEntertainment.net
