“With dark, expressive eyes and a rich, versatile voice, Mr. Hashemi is a compelling presence, ably suggesting a man haunted by the agonizing tale he must recount”
The New York Times

“HEARTBREAKINGLY FUNNY...Ms. Wiest gives her finest stage performance in years. Mr. Turturro uses his radioactive intensity to appropriately disruptive effect. Juliet Rylance and Katherine Waterston are especially affecting. This production is positively poetic. More than any version I have seen, it illuminates THE CHERRY ORCHARD. If you are lucky you will see a production like this one.”

Young Vic presents a new version by visionary director Benedict Andrews, lauded in Berlin and Sydney for his “Big and Small” with Cate Blanchette, returns to the Young Vic after his triumphant The Return of Ulysses in 2011.
Renowned German designer Johannes Schütz makes his Young Vic debut.
Oedipus was originally produced by Nottingham Playhouse and Liverpool Playhouse and subsequently presented at the Edinburgh Festival 2011.”
In this acclaimed new version of one of the world’s most enduring and greatest plays, writer and director Steven Berkoff has created ‘The bravest, most exciting and moving Greek tragedy in years’
“Berkoff’s expressionistic style, and Cockney idiom, operate like a Greek mask, conveying the unbearable with stylised ghastliness”.
The title is important. This is “A Magic Flute” not “The Magic Flute”; a free adaptation of Mozart and Shikaneder by Peter Brook, the composer Franck Krawczyk and author Marie-Hélène Estienne.
Attiki Cultural Society, Athens, is co-producing along with C.I.C.T. / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord ; Festival d’Automne, Paris ; Musikfest, Bremen ; Théâtre de Caen ; MC2, Grenoble ; barbicanbite11, London ; Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg ; Piccolo Teatro di Milano – Teatro d’Europa ; Lincoln Center Festival, New York.
the critics said:
“Brook’s magic dust, lights up a classic!”
“Le résultat est d’une poésie si intense par moments qu’elle coupe le souffle, d’une drôlerie si exacte qu’elle rend hilare, d’une écriture si juste qu’elle est la quintessence même du théâtre de Mozart. Chapeau bas monsieur Brook. Vivez longtemps, vivez loin !”
