Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...In their kaleidoscopic staging, co-directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott provide color and movement in abundance. And like it we do."

F. Kathleen Foley

LA Weekly - Recommended

"...Fast-paced and chaotic, A Noise Withinís production plays up the comedy and passions of its star-crossed lovers at the expense of its dramatic civil war plotline, in which Antonyís loyalties are split between his Egyptian mistress and his country."

Pauline Adamek

Backstage - Recommended

"...Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott have achieved a frequently enthralling production driven by two stellar lead performances and a viscerally exciting look and feel. Despite occasional lapses in pacing, this is an intellectually stimulating and visually appealing take on the classic tragedy."

"...This Noises Within production had style but no substance. Sitting through and watching this production was a gruelling experience for me."

LA Stage Times - Recommended

"...And for those of us who were underwhelmed by A Noise Withinís first two productions in Pasadena last fall, Antony and Cleopatra is the long-awaited show that clearly justifies the move and its surrounding hoopla."

Don Shirley

On Stage Los Angeles - Somewhat Recommended

"...Thankfully, the Elliotts have included some wonderful physical action with soldiers and pirates swinging on ropes and finally hoisting poor Antony up to Cleopatra as he dies. Serious cutting might have let the audience take flight in under two hours, which would have been a good idea. For true fans of A Noise Within and this play, go for the action. As for the words, words, wordsÖ there are certainly a lot of them."

Culture Spot LA - Recommended

"...The creative forces at A Noise Within are talented at transporting us to another time and place and have added another great Shakespearean production to their repertoire."

Julie Riggott

The Stage Struck Review - Recommended

"...Directed by Artistic Co-Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, and starring Elliott, this version becomes less the great romantic tragedy often portrayed, and more the story of a weak-willed whiner who falls for a manipulative and hedonistic foreign queen. The loyalties they trifle with, and the devastation they invite become far more interesting, or frustrating, than simple star-crossed romance."
