REVIEWS & ACCOLADES
LA Times Critic’s Choice A Spare yet Forceful “Henry V” at Pacific Resident Theatre “Let’s see if this cockpit can hold the vasty fields of France. And [PRT’S] answer, in their vivid and thrilling performance, is yes. Using just their bodies and voices (and one astonishing special effect I will not spoil), Cienfuegos and his cast create a testament to the power of theater in its purest form.
Argonaut Online Reviews Henry V Venice’s Pacific Resident Theatre has a hit on its hands with a minimalist take on “Henry V”. By Michael Aushenker Guillermo Cienfuegos’ minimalist, unconventional staging of Shakespeare’s “Henry V” at Venice’s Pacific Resident Theatre has become a runaway hit in L.A.’s theater circle since its Feb. 22 opening, earning rave reviews and playing to packed houses that have extended the play’s initial two-month run
KCRW Radio by Anthony Byrnes. O for a Muse of Venice. It begins: O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
The brightest heaven of invention,
A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
And monarchs to behold the swelling scene!
So much of the play is captured right there.
