DIRECTING

reviews

 “The production makes of a small budget a big virtue.  This stripped-down, back-to-the-roots rendition is simultaneously slapdash, as it must be, and tight. Eleven well-cast actors, most of whom can really sing, keep the warhorse in a lather”

Forum Review - Toby Grace - Out NJ Forum

“… played to a packed house that roared with laughter at all the right moments and applauded until their hands were in danger of damage… Michael Dean Morgan and the entire cast and crew deserve our praise and thanks for an evening we will not forget.”

La Mancha Review - Neal Zoren - U.S. 1 Newspaper

“Morgan’s direction demonstrates taste and imagination….Princeton’s Lewis Center for the Arts, where “La Mancha” is staged, is a compact yet open space Morgan uses creatively.”

La Mancha Review - John Timpane - Philly Inquirer

“Michael Dean Morgan’s disciplined direction gives us a La Mancha not so much boiled down as essential.”
