What the Critics Said:
"Wasnak is fun to watch.in flight,
bounding over and snaking under a stick, sulking
when she can't get her shadow to stick. When she
imitates Tinkerbell's electronic voice, she flashes
another of her many gifts, as a mimic..Peering out
from under his pirate's tricorn hat and wavy black
curls, [Charles Queary] looks momentarily astonished
that the audience members would boo his evil calculations.
Then he eggs them on with a little kiss and fiendishly
narrowed eyes. There's something deranged behind
his ingratiating, sweet smile..
But when his wig came awry and
Queary improvised a menacing ad-lib,you just had to
love his unswervingly rotten Hook."
Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle
"The real surprise of the evening is Charles Queary's
dastardly Captain Hook. Absolutely addicted to audience
response, Queary played the audience like an ill-tuned
lute and we hissed at him and booed him with as much
pleasure as we clapped for the life of Tinkerbell..[Diane
Wasnak] has an electrifying charm..Following the Marin
Shakespeare Festival through the summer is one of
the great pleasures for us theatre lovers."
