Chicago Reader- Highly Recommended

"...Accompanied by an adorable sidekick (canines from the Masonic Association of Service and Therapy Dogs and New Leash on Life taking turns in the role of Crab), Mattos in particular charms while delivering Launce's elliptical discourse on the disappointments of love, especially a dog's failure to weep at the pains of his master. An afternoon in the park is nice—a play in the park that includes attempted rape, banishment, disloyal friends, fickle lovers, bad fathers, robbery, and deceit and yet ends well is nicer."

Stage and Cinema- Highly Recommended

"...Condensed to 90 minutes, Beth Wolf’s deft staging can hold its own against the summertime distractions of a big-city playground. With youthful ardor it delivers Shakespeare’s tomfoolery with enough drive and determination to compete with your garden-variety urban recreation."

Splash Magazine- Highly Recommended

"...The production team includes Jeremiah Barr, scenic design, who made much of a few props in a local green park; Rachel Sypniewski, costume design, who dressed the performers colorfully and characteristically; Chris Smith and Maureen Yasko, fight and intimacy directors, who made the action look effortless; Elizabeth Rentfro, composer/music designer for the timeless original music that yet took the mind back hundreds of years; Annelise Dickinson, vocal coach, who enabled The Bard’s difficult language to trip off the tongue and be believable to the ear."

Picture This Post- Recommended

"...Director Beth Wolf, stage manager, Hazel Marie, and scenic director, Jeremiah Barr, know how to make a lot from a little. As Hamlet is often quoted, “The plays the thing”. MIDSOMMER FLIGHT embraces that to bring Shakespeare to the parks across Chicago. And they keep performances under two hours, so we are home before dark."
