Critical Acclaim

REVIEWS OF SOME RECENT PRODUCTIONS

For TRANSFORMATIONS (Conrad Susa/Anne Sexton): “Ronis’ direction is richly inventive, with snippets of choreography throughout, including a conga line and a parody of the Supremes. The staging is delightful, using the full height of the set to frame and reframe action.”
– ISTHMUS, MADISON, WISCONSIN

For ALBERT HERRING: “The cast was outstanding not only for singing, but for acting. Under Ronis’s guidance, they capture no end of comic nuances both individually and in interaction with each other.”
– ISTHMUS, MADISON, WISCONSIN

For LE NOZZE DI FIGARO: “Director David Ronis […] has imbued the action with an almost continual froth of appropriate visual humor, and clearly has coaxed the principals to a point just short of overly broad humor. Key to this is their (and his) ability to flip a switch and let that Mozartean magic of emotional depth and expression suddenly illuminate the proceedings.”
– MADISON MAGAZINE

For THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA (Four Seasons Theatre): “Under the direction of David Ronis, the scenes flow naturally, with just enough stage business to allow the small cast to fill the city of Florence with interesting and specific characters.”
