    Jealousy, Blow Thy Mighty Winds!

    Ben Brantley

    July 2, 2010: There’s a whole lot of yelling going on in the country of Sicilia, where the king’s psychotic jealousy has put everyone on edge. In Michael Greif’s emotionally blunt production of “The Winter’s Tale” at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, voices are raised to the heavens in agitation, indignation, supplication, imprecation and protestation. In this mythical land of wonder and woe, the motto seems to be that if you have something to say, say it with volume.

    Cute Sheep, Crazy King Make ‘The Winter’s Tale’ Odd Mix

    John Simon

    July 3, 2010: “The Winter’s Tale” may be Shakespeare’s hardest play to stage, but Michael Greif’s uneven direction at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, starless, mis- and undercast, makes the task seem harder still.

    The Winter's Tale

    Dan Bacalzo

    July 2, 2010: Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, currently being presented by the Public Theater as part of its 2010 Shakespeare in the Park season at the Delacorte Theater, is well known for its curious combination of comedy and tragedy. In Michael Greif's disappointingly uneven production, however, the comic bits are allowed to shine brightly, while the dramatic power of the piece remains largely untapped.

    'The Winter's Tale' tries to dazzle with scenery - but doesn't

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    July 2, 2010: "The Winter's Tale" is one of Shakespeare's "problem" plays, what with its clashing mashup of searing tragedy, frothy comedy and head-scratching 11th-hour enchantment.

    The Winter's Tale

    Les Gutman

    July 5, 2010: It seems like just yesterday that this play was being performed at Shakespeare in the Park. Checking my notes, I see that it was, not the sixteen years between the two "halves" of The Winter's Tale, but nonetheless a full decade ago. (That review is linked below, and adds much detail on the story that's not repeated here.) Time has indeed, as Shakespeare says, used its wings.
