Rave reviews for The Winter's Tale:

"The clever contemporary flourishes in the video segments and Robel's own effective score add to this uneven but thoughtful take on one of Shakespeare's wisest plays"
Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

"Bohemian’s The Winter’s Tale is a rewarding and enjoyable production for those schooled in Shakespeare or not, and a chance to see some impressive newcomers to the Chicago theatre scene.... Robel has also contributed an impressive original background score"
John Olson,

"The sincere storytelling in this Bohemian Theatre Ensemble staging, directed by Peter Robel, carries the day... Kyle Lemieux is powerfully persuasive as Leontes... Elizabeth Christine Tanner makes much of Paulina's glorious denunciations"
Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader
