MN Playlist review of Antigone: "...the company tells Antigone’s story in perhaps the most vibrant and unmediated way possible."
Lavender review of Antigone: "The entire ensemble embodies a beautiful sense of unity. The physical movement this production employs requires skillfully channeled use of muscular strength, as well as powerful vocal creativity."
Cherry & Spoon weighs in on Antigone: "...a story that's still worth hearing, especially this version, which focuses on a strong female heroine standing up for her family and doing what she believes is right, no matter the consequences."
Review of Antigone from City Pages: "The Coup d'Etat production (of Antigone) is an intimate take, emphasizing the fact that these legendary characters are not gods but humans, trying to divine exactly what the gods would have them do in a time of turmoil."
Review of Antigone from Star Tribune: "Theatre Coup d’Etat’s thoughtful approach to “Antigone” juxtaposes the rituals of fate and sacrifice against the wounded family dynamic at the heart of this play. The results are powerful."
Antigone review from Matthew Everett: "Antigone remains a powerful story..."
Twin Cities Stages review of Antigone: "...what happens when the justice system does not match up with morality? This is a question that we need to ask ourselves today just as much as Sophocles needed to ask it 2500 years ago. Theatre Coup D'Etat's adaptation and staging of Antigone does this with mastery, and I highly recommend you go and see it."
