“Both exuberance and inevitable destruction mark Jim Poulos’ dazzling performance as Mercutio. He is Romeo’s best friend, loyal to a fatal fault, but also a partier, jokester, and antagonist. Poulos totally captivates on stage, and it is in contrast to Mercutio’s testosterone-driven bravado that Romeo’s gentle and romantic persona is forged.”
“Doug Scholz-Carlson, Artistic Director of the Great River Shakespeare Festival, has directed this production—splendidly, ferociously—and, moreover, has added his considerable talent as a fight choreographer. …switchblades are the weapon of choice. The fight that ensues is thrillingly presented, both balletic and guttural.”

—Arthur Dorman, Talkin’ Broadway, Minneapolis
