What is most impressive about the Actors Shakespeare Company's productions (aside from the fine ensemble work, skillful staging, and adept direction)is their courage to eschew trendy and superficial interpretive overlays and explore Sheakespeare's masterpieces with a sincere ambition to present their essence and let their genius shine in an honest and unpretentious way. In a theatrical age of hip-hop productions of Hamlet (as if that play's depth can be illuminated by flash, glitter, and bling) ASC avoids such creative exhaustion by returning to the source of the author's ability to present life in all its moving and vivid complexity. I always feel more alive after experiencing ASC's productions, and that's what great theater is all about.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the talent and enthusiasm and high creative standards of its cast and crew.
