Funny, Delightful, Quirky, Entertaining, While a few roles are miscast, overall, the cast is very good.

See it if You enjoy non-traditional interpretations of Shakespeare. You want to hear some original music. You want a fun, high-energy cast.

Don't see it if You don't like non-traditional interpretations of Shakespeare. You want a more polished, more traditionally classical cast.

Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining, Quirky, Looooooooong

See it if You enjoy quirky takes on old classics. The leads were stellar and hit their comedic timing marks beautifully.

Don't see it if You don't like to see good actors mixed with mediocre ones for a sometimes mish-mosh of acting. Also this was very loooooong. Cut out 1/2hr.

Confusing, Dizzying, Quirky, Slow, Original

See it if you want a twist on a Shakespeare script. I realized I am not a fan of his writing. Eric Ryan Swanson will def be an upcoming star.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of Shakespeare. The show is slow, with an occasional amazing performance by Eric Ryan Swanson.

Entertaining, Cliched, Dated

See it if You like Shakespeare and want to see the story retold.

Don't see it if Expect an unique twist in modern day Shakespeare, as there wasn't any connection between the story and it being set in lower east side.

Disappointing, Uneven acting, Forced "modernization", Slow

See it if you like the simplicity of small productions, the play as written with a slight modern flair, and won't be distracted by a few bad actors.

Don't see it if you want Shakespeare in the Park quality, modren language, great staging, or an evenly talented cast - one or two actors are cringe worthy.

Entertaining, Quirky, Delightful, Empty

See it if A fine production for understanding specific parts of Midsummer but not a fully fleshed out version of the whole.

Don't see it if You need your Shakespeare to be solidly acted and bravely told. This seemed like a very high school-esque production.
