PRAISE FOR ILLYRIA
"...[How I Learned to Drive], together with Weckstein’s impressive revival of
Caryl Churchill’s Cloud Nine last year, is quickly establishing Illyrian Players
as one of L.A.’s top interpreters of contemporary classics."
—Bill Raden, Stage Raw's Top Ten
"Well written and performed genre, ODESSA is a great example
of using Fringe Festival restrictions to your creative advantage.
Illyrian Players are now on my watch list for LA Theatre.”
---Cindy Marie Jenkins, Lemon Lounge LA Picks of the Hollywood Fringe 2014
"Speaking of emerging: remember the name Carly Weckstein.
She has shown nuanced skill directing in widely varied theatrical styles,
with tiny resources. What will she do next, with Othello?"
—Mark Hein, Theatre Ghost
"...Weckstein’s gender-bending casting brought new dimension to the text and, perhaps,
more clearly illuminated what may have been Shakespeare’s original intention:
to expose sexual role-playing in our daily lives.
She had a clear vision for the play and made bold, fearless choices to bring that vision to life.
I am looking forward to following Ms. Weckstein’s career. I expect great things."
—Sheri Lee Miller, Bay Area Director & Theatre Educator
