"Even at the three-hour mark, the production feels elegantly spare and direct in its language (by writers Yussef El Guindi and Stephanie Timm) and staging (by directors Kurt Beattie and Sheila Daniels). Instead of reaching for Bollywood-style lavishness, the design team relies on simple fabric, bamboo, vivid costumes by Melanie Burgess, and a few well-timed visual surprises (puppets, flash paper, actors rappelling onto the stage). This intelligent restraint lets the 14 actors do the work of evoking, say, an entire kingdom in flames or Rama negotiating with the ocean." (Brendan Kiley)
