Midsommer Flight’s annual performance of TWELFTH NIGHT is a prime example of what makes Chicago theater so special.
~ Connor McShane, Performink

With a cast who do their darndest, the 100 minutes pass quickly. This play lives comfortably among the flowers of the Lincoln Park Conservatory Show House
~ Jay Van Ort, New City Stage

The excellent performances, clever staging, and beautiful environment makes this a Twelfth Night worth seeing. RECOMMENDED
~ Bryson David Hoff, Chicagoland Musical Theatre

Some characters are excellently rendered: Oly Oxinfry well embodies the contradictions of the melancholy fool Feste; whether they prance, provoke, or pester their audience for pennies, they are both the lightest and heaviest of presences.
~ Irene Hsiao, Chicago Reader RECOMMENDED
