I can still recall seeing Gorilla Rep´s "A Midsummer Night´s Dream" one summer in New York in 1993. The actors´ physicality coupled with the words of Shakespeare were not the only reasons why this (free) show in Washington Square Park was so enjoyable. It also was the sense from the actors and the director, Chris Sanderson, that this company were engaged with something primal, magical, mysterious. What a delight, experiencing theater practiced by men and women who hold this to be a key principle! And they are still going strong, nearly 20 years later, providing free Shakespeare (and new works) to audiences throughout the 5 boroughs of New York.

I was lucky enough to be part of the casts of Gorilla Rep's free outdoor productions of "Hamlet" in 2008 and "Peer Gynt" in 2009. The "Gorilla" aesthetic is exciting, engaging and engrossing, and the sense of camaraderie and a shared mission pulses through every performance. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with this company and I look forward to future collaborations -- including 2011's tremendously exciting summer staging of "Macbeth."

Gorilla Rep is a wonderful theatre troupe that meets to perform at that magic hour when shadows are longest, and in its adventurous productions, conjures up the essential heart of theatre and human nature, as in their poetic production of Peer Gynt, or in the rousing version of Julius Caesar.

Gorilla Rep's alfresco style and stunning wit is not to be missed! Extraordinary talents bring great theater alive fulfilling the company's mission "to provide the highest quality productions of classical dramatic material with the flavor of contemporary immediacy to people where they are for free".

I am a company member of Gorilla Rep. I had the honor of performing in two of Gorilla Rep's plays in 2009, and it was a positive, challenging experience. I learned a lot about classical theater, outdoor performance and coming through in a crunch. I've also had the opportunity to watch several other Gorilla Rep shows, and I've enjoyed them very much. I'm looking forward to participating in the next Gorilla Rep show, either as an actor or as an audience member.
