As with my last review for Theater at Monmouth (TAM) it is almost hard to single out the cast. I say that, full knowing that I will. But having said that, the cast is unbelievably strong and works together as a wonderfully cohesive ensemble. Almost more than the way they inhabit their character’s strengths and peccadillos, the cast’s most important accomplishment is the grasp they have on Shakespeare’s language.
