Elyse Edelma as Viola in TWELFTH NIGHT a

"Edelman is particularly good at playing overlooked and undervalued women, conveying her characters’ intrinsic worth to us even as those characters remain oblivious to it themselves. Her ability to channel these characters’ ensuing awakening to the barely believed prospect that they might indeed be special is alternatively funny and poignant. She’s the best reason to see this show."  - Mike Fischer (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
