Vivid snapshots

“Lepage is exercising his authority over a play that can easily veer out of control psychologically and structurally. At one point in the text, Shakespeare comes up with a dizzying succession of brief scenes so fast and fleeting that you wonder whether they have any value at all. But Lepage brings them off brilliantly, turning them into vivid snapshots with point and substance. Tracking shots and fades — astonishing in live theatre — show a readiness to reach into a cinematic tool kit dating back to the silent era while also harnessing it to an effects technology that firmly belongs in the new millennium.”
