Great praise for star Stephen Mead, as well as for the Idyll form and approach.

Highlights include:
"Stephen Mead's name could be on that
shortlist of gifted-at-playing-crazies"

"Brilliant character actor"
 “I experienced the idylls more as music
than as text... In the same way that a great
symphony can conjure a broad range of
emotions and even narrative without the
help of text, the sound was more intoxicating 
 than the meaning of the words”

 “a fantastic opportunity to catch a brilliant
artist in an intimate setting.” 

 - Ben Cattell Noll
Washington City Paper

 “Dark. Powerful. Mysterious. Magnetic. Suspenseful.”

“avant garde masterpieces in the making 
by poet Magus Magnus”  
  “Stephen Mead presents a truly 
breath-taking and captivating 
 “allows one to return the very
heart and essence of theatre.”
  “truly a ‘must-see’”

 -Veronique MacRae
DC Metro Theater Arts

“a tight series of works that blend
well together as a whole, while
remaining accessible to the audience.”  

-T. Chase Meacham
DC Theatre Scene
