"After fringeing for days this show was so nice. Walking around not being stuffed into theatre for an hour is a nice relief, also a great way to show off a beautiful Minneapolis park. [...] Great way to show this pretty well known story in a new light with some brevity and wit. May be my favorite show at fringe this year."
"I wasn't sure what to expect from Penelope, but what I got was a quirky fun show with strong characters and some great physical acting. The immersive style of the show also gives audience members a chance to stretch their legs, but don't worry, there's no audience participation!"
"Sometimes I wonder at the choice for a BYOV. Not here! Wonderfully executed by all. I loved the split scenes - you could go to different areas, yet you never lost something important. Highly recommend, and a nice way to get outside during fringe."
"Loved the use of the park as a venue, and I loved finding a scene to watch and being able to peek at something odd happening in another scene. A very funny and quirky retelling of this story, and great comedic acting."
"Great use of the park and directing focus. Funny and a fantastic one liner about a modern orgy"
"This is a fun, refreshing show on a number of levels. First, Savage Umbrella's spin on classic Greek is engaging and enjoyable. Second, you get to be outside in what has been beautiful weather in MN. Third, not to diminish what other productions are doing, but turning the Fringe model of sitting in a theater for 55 minutes on its head is a wonderful change. You get a great show, great characters, the great outdoors, and glimpse of what more productions should be doing: taking a chance on being different."
"If you find yourself drawn to character-driven shows, this one is for you... Come prepared to wander around (quite literally) in a rich world created by a very talented team of artists"
"What fun in Mathews Park! Wildly creative, funny, and witty :)"
