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
This is a company with a unique point of view, passionate in its response to the material, and willing to dive
into the darkness to examine the less noble parts of a man -- much like one William Shakespeare.”
--Ellen Dostal, Shakesepare in LA, Broadway World
"...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."
—Sheri Lee Miller, Bay Area Director & Theatre Educator
"Speaking of emerging: remember the name Carly Weckstein. She has shown nuanced skill
directing in widely varied theatrical styles, with tiny resources."
—Mark Hein, Theatre Ghost
