Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...But the social agenda, such as it is, never overpowers the spirit of misrule and mischief underpinning the whole affair. Zach Tabor and Jason Goff as the carousing Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek, along with Stephanie Mattos's servant, Maria, bring strong elements of physical comedy. The supporting ensemble of musician/actors, performing Elizabeth Rentfro and Alex Mauney's original music, add delightful transitions to this well-paced 100-minute show, which makes it feel like springtime in December."

Chicago Stage Standard - Highly Recommended

"...All the actors were extremely talented and expressive in manner. While I wish I could gush about every single person, I will say the ensemble and the laughable loveable Sir Andrew Agnew played by Jason Goff all contributed immensely to the comedy. The performance was hilarious and added just the right amount of frivolity paired with Zach Tabor's Sir Toby Belch. The original musical score was out of this world with Baily Savage leading the ensemble musicians/actors in several tunes as the fool Feste."

"...In embracing chaos, this production of Twelfth Night finds harmonious synthesis, for the members of this company understand that love and disorder coincide. The calculated, tactically rich performances beckon the senses to invest in the story. With the beautiful backdrop of a lush greenhouse, Midsommer Flight has created something as magical as it is natural. For those with an insatiable itch for warmth, excitement, or “Shakespeare in the park” in the middle of December, Twelfth Night is a must-see."

Third Coast Review - Highly Recommended

"...Roberts directs his talented cast fluidly and they breeze through this abbreviated version of the original script in about 100 minutes. Seijo is excellent as Viola as are Toledo as Olivia and Mattos as Maria. Tabor, Goff and Caldwell add to the silliness as Sir Toby, Sir Andrew and Malvolio. Bailey Savage as Feste and singer/musician has a terrific comic presence and outstanding vocal style."

"...The production is well-acted, but the primary reason to attend is for the charming atmosphere, made even more so with the addition of some twinkling Christmas lights and a baby Wooly Mammoth whose presence does not go unmentioned."
