Timon of Athens

UC Irvine – May 2005
An adaptation of Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens

Review Excerpts

“Cohen’s production offers a soul-searing experience for 21st century audiences… . Shattering power [from a] magnificent performance of Sean Tarrant as Timon… .” —Daily Pilot

“Cohen’s concisely staged and streamlined adaptation plays so smoothly that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the Bard’s original ends and Cohen’s handiwork begins… . The trajectory of Timon’s downfall (an incredible Sean Tarrant, acting with vast range), as well as the nagging feeling that it could happen to any of us, moves the piece forcefully to its electrifying ending.” —OC Weekly

“A first-rate production… as timely today as it was 400 years ago. Tarrant… is nothing short of amazing.” —Irvine World News
