“Peer Gynt” at the Yale Rep

Zeynep Pamuk Yale Daily News 2/8/08

“One of the greatest strengths of ‘Peer Gynt’ is its richness and exuberance: The play compasses numerous settings and characters (most actors play six or seven different roles), but also invests energy in these settings and characters through the use of lighting, music and food. The lights change from neon green for Norway to a glittering yellow for Arabia. The music reminds one of a Kusturica movie: eclectic, chaotic, full of spirit and slightly demented. And food — unless it is raining from the ceiling or being playfully tossed by the characters — is often handed out to the audience.”
