Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You're easily amused. There are a few chuckles here but they really make you wait for them. The actors do their best with what they've got.

Don't see it if You expect any sort of Shakespeare or anything even remotely close to it. It's a cute idea that just isn't written/directed very well.

Entertaining, Dizzying, Great cast, Crazy, Fun singing

See it if You have liked a Charles Mee play;maybe the first draft of one he wrote in grammar school: you feel like being silly; Actors are terrific

Don't see it if You hate raunchy; you did not know it has an LGBTQ theme;soap opera overacting makes you cringe; Play is way too long 2 1/4 hours

“Hands down, Patrick Thomas McCarthy has written a slam-dunk retelling of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’...The members of the ensemble cast uniformly deliver well-developed outrageous characters...Director Patrick Aran keeps the antics moving along; however, there is room for a quicker pace at times to keep the farce from bogging down...This would tighten the play a bit and make it even more engaging and entertaining.”
