Critics Picks August 12

Robert Cicchini in the role of Chuck, 
Robert Cicchini’s Chuck projects utter physical rage while listening to a game on the radio, graphically revealing he is at the edge of an emotional precipice.
—Julio Martinez

Will Thomas McFadden in the roles of Lysander, Snug, and First Fairy 
Even among a cast that speaks the speech skillfully, Will Thomas McFadden stands out in all three of his roles. As Lysander, he’s a devoted beau in a performance that’s modern but not of our period. Then, he quickly transforms into the “slow of study” Snug, creating him with sweetly goofy physical comedy. To launch the very next scene, McFadden becomes a prancing First Fairy, delivering delicate evocative banter opposite Puck. Then, “performing” as the lion, McFadden’s Snug turns into a RADA graduate.
