A nice round up of the major reviews of Maxine Peake’s performance as Hamlet. I wonder if they’ve filmed this performance?

Twelfth Night dir. Darko Tresnjak

set design: Alexander Dodge

When I saw this in April of 2013, of course the acting was superb and the costumes were fantastic, but what really caught my eye was the set. During the show it could be configured in many ways, with Orsino’s bedroom coming up through the center, or with people running around in the passageways between the hedges. The bridges could be moved at will to simulate different environments, and the sky could change whenever the scene called for it. Overall, it lent the air of a garden party and to this day is one of the most visually enjoyable sets I’ve seen at the Hartford Stage.
