Sorry, that was supposed to be Hytner.

The New York Times published a long review today (17 July) which I think
is right on.  I suppose it can be downloaded from the Times's website.
I saw the production last week and couldn't agree more with the Times's
reviewer (Ben Brantley).

Saw it . . . design of production superlative consonant with "liquidity"
hypothesis of l2th night, but acting is at best adequate:
interesting Feste by David Patrick Kelley,
Helen Hunt runs gamut from A to B,
Kyra Sedgwick hysteroid one note performance,
Paul Rudd's Orsino petulant rather than poetic,
Philip Bosco OK Malvolio but we have seen better,
Ditto Bryan Murray's Sir Toby.

Again, fabulous mise en scene; little better than mediocre acting.
