“Had me nearly falling out of my chair with laughter … From its very beginning, ‘Rude Mechanics’ is an exemplar of theater about theater. To use the bard’s own words, it is “some satire, keen and critical” about theater and art … Much like a Shakespearean comedy, ‘Rude Mechanics’ is hilarious but not farcical. It is poignant and makes clever commentary about theater and art that are timely and also timeless. And it manages to do all this while still being laugh-out-loud funny … I highly recommend this production to any and all lovers of comedy and lovers of theater.” Jess Hoffmann, Berkshire On Stage
“Delightful, wonderfully crafted play … A marvelous tour de force performance and a fantastic cast.” Jean Tafler
“This is a comedy, a high comedy, with more laughs than anticipated. More laughs than usual these days. So much more, thank goodness … The four actors in the show play seven roles, three of them by Steven Patterson, and the work they do on stage is dynamic, dramatic, quixotic, and hysteric … I would see this again without a moment of hesitation. It’s that good. It is so good, the cast is so good, that it should run for months but since it won’t you need to see it now … Every theater doing Shakespeare should add this play to its repertoire!” J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
“Loved the performance last night! I laughed and laughed and laughed!” Mary Dambaugh Neumann
“Laughed ‘til my face hurt!” Johanna D’Aleo
“I have a ticket for next Sunday, but I’m not sure I can wait! Everyone who has seen it raves about it!” Sue Ward
“Great fun! Be sure not to miss this one!” Ava Barbour
“If you are anywhere within driving distance to Catskill, NY, GO SEE THIS PLAY!!! Uproarious. Hilarious! Poignant play about a play within a play. So deftly written, directed, and played by such an able and nimble cast of actors! Some of us laughed. Some of us cried. Some of us did both at the same time! Great homage to not only Shakespeare, but to all theater and its practitioners. Well done, all!” Michael Garfield Levine
“A fantastic, original, laugh-your-head-off show! … Great fun! I applaud you for courage to create something so original! So much fun, unexpected, relatable. The staging and acting brimmed with energy and excitement. Terrific costumes and props. Thank you so much!” Olga Zernitskaya Porterfield
