Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

She Stoops to Conquer

What the Critics Said:

"Jonathan Gonzalez..is engagingly bumptious as [the] loutish half-brother Tony Lumpkin...But Bridgett and Fink take the comedy to richer, more rewarding levels in each of their scenes together – Fink charmingly, cagily responding to and exploiting Bridgett's hilarious depictions of almost terminal shyness. Currier's production may stoop too often for cheap laughs, but in Fink and Bridgett's wooing scenes, it conquers." Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle


"They came, they stooped, they conquered. Seizing any opportunity to go for the delicisouly comic ‘low' in Oliver Goldsmith's ‘She Stoops to Conquer,' the Marin Shakespeare Company stoops indeed. And it does so with all the wild abandon and studied grace of two lords on a wenching spree...superbly cast, with gorgeous period costumes and a solid, inventive set. Indeed, creative director Robert S. Currier more than lives up to his reputation as a director who is at his best when doing comedy...Forty-year stage veteran Maguire..is an absolute joy to watch onstage...Moyer, simply put, gives the joint some class...The comic tour de force of the evening, however, was Bridgett's young Mr. Marlowe...Dick Van Dyke would have been proud. Fink is equally enticing ...The rest of the cast performed admirably...'She Stoops' is a thoroughly enjoyable evening of theatre."
Mark Langton, Marin Independent Journal





 

"It is another flavor of insanity entirely that runs the show in the delightfully staged She Stoops to Conquer...It's ridiculous, yes, but it's extremely well-done, and quite funny."
David Templeton, North Bay Bohemian



"Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer turns out to be the perfect summer entertainment after all...Bridgett's performance is a delight throughout...As a director, Robert Currier loves physical comedy onstage, and in Goldsmith's script he's found a perect partner."
Lee Brady, Pacific Sun
