The Duchess [of Malfi]

The Duchess [of Malfi]

★★★★☆  Necessarily nightmarish:

The blood-soaked events of The Duchess [of Malfi], a co-production between the Lyceum and the Citizens Theatre, are almost unwatchably intense at times. As a depiction of timeless and timely considerations, however, this production is hard to beat.

Local Hero

Local Hero

★★★☆☆ Charming:

Local Hero, the Lyceum’s co-production with the Old Vic, has the authenticity and drive one would expect considering the source material, but fails to add much that is new.
