Broadway World: A Marvelous Blend of Modern Theatre and Good, Old-Fashioned Storytelling

"Berkeley Rep's Tristan & Yseult is one of those shows that combines the best elements of modern theatre with good old-fashioned storytelling and does so with amazing brilliance. It all seems effortless, but what does it actually take to bring this ancient and tragic tale of passion and betrayal to life each night with such precision and genius? From across the pond comes Cornwall's Kneehigh Theatre Company with their wonderfully inventive and thoroughly British way of telling stories, and we find that great gobs of cheekiness, imagination and daring are what it takes - but it also needs an enthusiastic audience for the sparks to really fly. I highly recommend that you help make those sparks fly and help in the co-creation of Tristan & Yseult which is playing now through January 6, 2014 at Berkeley Repertory Theatre."
