The latest review of "The Revenger's Tragedy", from longtime Orange County Register critic Eric Marchese:
If it's true that revenge is a dish best served cold, then Monkey Wrench Collective's newest show is a frosty treat...

MWC co-founder Dave Barton has created a new adaptation of Middleton's Jacobean-era gore-fest, giving it a kinky, Quentin Tarantino-type spin. The characters still speak in blank verse, yet their garb and choice of weapons (automatic handguns) would suggest a more recent vintage... [Barton's] staging in an empty building near downtown Fullerton's train station (until his new theater space can re-open later this spring) is as visceral – and as gory – as any revenge tale antique or modern.
