Surface: Amok with Shakespeare-acting voice (lovely tone, little meaning); muscle-cramping immobility; confusing cross-casting. Underbelly: Dramaturgical essay indicates gender-bender more than gimmickry; but intent doesn’t transpire. Instead, I saw women playing men, rather than exploration of how feminine power – divinely begotten or otherwise - in action differs (and/or doesn’t) from masculine.
