Nov 20 Critics Praise Midsummer and Kinsmen

We've had reviews from MD Theatre Guide, DC Metro Theatre Arts, Washington City Paper, Brightest Young Things, and Shakepeareances.com all praising our repertory of A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Two Noble Kinsmen:

- "Brave Spirits hopes to repeat its repertory experiment in future seasons if things go well, and there’s enough potential here to make that an exciting proposition."

- "The caliber of acting from Brave Spirits is superb; which is even more impressive considering all of the young cast members perform in both plays. Each is perfectly suited to his or her character."

- "Washington is blessed to have young, creative, multi-talented emerging companies like Brave Spirits here. As our arts scene continues to expand into under-served communities, expanding audiences as it makes its progress, I have to say that our theatre family has a bright future indeed."
