The “sparkling production” of the “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” at Pace’s downtown campus through Sunday, received rave reviews in The New York Times (featured in weekend “Listings” with a star) TheaterMania.com, and NYmag.com.

“A World of silliness, but No Winking This Time.”

The New York Times’s review of the Shakespeare’s Globe production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” at Pace’s downtown campus through Sunday, by the paper’s chief drama critic Ben Brantley, finds the show “sparkling.” “I found myself giggling,” he declares, adding that “We often shiver or tear up, in pleasure and relief” at the end of Shakespeare’s comedies; “you’ll experience that same ecstatic goose flesh.” 

The sagacious David Finkle, of TheaterMania.com, calls it “thoroughly irresistible,” “immensely entertaining,” and “a rollicking carousel of treats.”

The NY Times featured it in the weekend’s “the Listings” section with a star denoting a “highly recommended” production.
