A Virginia Woolf story, transcendent switches across time, gender and geography, great acting…and a portrayal of Queen Elizabeth by David Greenspan that rivals Cait Blanchett and Dame Judy Dench… I’m not sure which element of this production I liked the most, but I loved them all.
The Classic Stage Company is my favorite venue for an intense and intimate theater setting. Richard II and Richard III, as well as Venus in Fur and New Jerusalem, both by David Ives have been fantastic and now Orlando, adapted from Virginia Woolf’s novel by Sarah Ruhl (directed by Rebecca Taichman) continues that perfect record. Go see it! (136 E. 13th St.)
