"Fight choreographers and those who are masters of stage combat are often called upon for particular scenes in the theatre, especially historical works or ones dealing with explicit violence, but these are still usually isolated bits of a larger picture. It is really wonderful to have the opportunity to see a huge cast filled with exorbitantly talented individuals having the chance to make these skills the very heart of the art of the piece."
Full review here.
Paula Citron with Classical 96.3FM said some lovely things about the show as well here, stating that "the history lesson [in dueling] has both interest and humour".
AND the Brown Okinawa Assault Incident blog noted that the show is "full of comic relief, tension and crisp, well choreographed fights".
AND Panic Manual adds that the members of the cast "are the best at what they do, they love it, and it shows."
AND Mooney on Theatre says that "this is stage combat at its best."
