"...the standout performance belongs to Allison Altman as Abigail Williams. Altman perfectly captures what makes Abigail such a terrifying individual. Her Abigail comes across as a sociopath lacking any core identity. In Altman's capable hands, Abigail is a shape-shifter who can transform instantaneously when she thinks it will get her what she wants. One moment she is sweet, flirty, innocent, or vulnerable; the next she is vicious, icy, or hysterical. Everything she says is a lie, but it all rings true. Watching Altman, it is easy to see how nearly every authority figure in Salem could be seduced and duped by this young woman. It is a performance that is both chilling and mesmerizing."

"Matters grow far more serious as Viola (an earnest, oft-bewildered Allison Altman) attempts, in her chosen drag, to correct not just the sexism but the solipsism of Duke Orsino’s fixation on the aloof Olivia…No regional production of Twelfth Night has indicated with greater clarity exactly what Viola is getting herself into in her pursuit.”
