Fascinating insights into the breadth, diversity, evolution, and significance of van Hove's work. * Shakespeare Quarterly *
The subtitle of Ivo van Hove: From Shakespeare to David Bowie suggests how widely [van Hove] has ranged to create theatre synthesizing realism and stylization to stimulate audiences into seeing classics of every kind with fresh eyes. And that subtitle doesn't entirely capture the full range on display in this informative new collection assembled by theatre scholars Susan Bennett and Sonia Massai. * American Theatre *
