A deliciously funny production. Weston’s production enjoys the full dimension of Marivaux’s characters.  The ‘Triumph of Love’ is delightfully intelligent comedy.” – Rutland Herald

“Weston’s production delivers some fine comic moments. The production is highly polished and thoroughly professional.  Unger effectively maneuvers the cast through the plot. There are fine performances… that provide with gusto enough pratfalls, ear-numbing puns and outrageous malapropisms to keep the most jaded theatregoer happy.”  – Brattleboro Reformer

” ‘Triumph of Love’ A triumphant finale for Weston’s 2002 summer season.  A wonderful evening of theatre. – The Vermont Message
