wittenberg | responses

"Wittenberg was absolutely brilliant - and excellent script - and so well presented! My friend and I were well challenged and entertained!" | Mae, audience email

"In the end, I felt this performance has it all – great script, fantastic acting, depth of humour and thematical elements, but most importantly it expects much from the audience. Wittenberg captures us on several different levels – the more background you have, the more you can appreciate the depth of this play’s dialogue and central themes and many references. Not a play to be missed, even if you don’t consider yourself an expert on 16th century theology." | Erin Jane, Review Vancouver

"Wittenberg is a play that is as much about ideas as story or characters. It is not a show that can be enjoyed passively, but for the audience member willing to slide to the front of the seat and fully engage their intellect, it is a stimulating, thought-provoking, and deeply rewarding experience." | Brian Paterson, Laura Murray PR

"Wittenberg, Pacific Theatre’s latest offering, was a surprisingly educational (and entertaining) way to spend Halloween." | Alyzee, Being Emme

"Put together the man who sold his soul to the devil, the orphaned prince who strolls through graveyards talking to ghosts and contemplating suicide and murder, and the father of the Protestant Reformation – on the very anniversary of his posting “95 Theses” – and you have a perfect play for All Hallow’s Eve." | Carol Heynnen, The MB Herald

"Wittenberg reads like an old-fashioned parlor game where guests are asked if they could have dinner with anyone through history, who it would be. Playwright David Davalos answers a version of that question for himself by assembling Doctor Faustus (Anthony F. Ingram), Martin Luther (Marcus Youssef) and Hamlet (Mack Gordon) at Germany’s Wittenberg University in the early 16th century... There are some wonderful performances." | Mark Robins, GayVancouver.Net
