My first review

I am playing Thesus in A Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of Lethbridge’s Shakespeare in the Park.

I haven’t acted in 8 years, so it’s been kind of nice to get back into it. This is the largest production I have ever been in. Prior to this, I have been in only one-act products with only 3 or 4 actors. It has been interesting working with so many actors, and having over an hour between scenes.

Local theatre critic, Brian Tyson, attended opening night last week, and wrote a review. Here’s what he had to say about me:

Kim Siever, who played him, may have looked more like a prosperous stockbroker than an Athenian Duke, but he managed to assemble enough dignity to contrast his maturity in love to that of the younger actors, and to embody what is harmonious in the play. Siever also brought a brief warmth to a character that some critics think is too rational; too cold for loving.

My very first review!
