Epic, Relevant, Great writing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want relevant, smart comedy w/actors who physically embody their roles ingeniously, great costumes, inspired by Hamlet only way more fun

Don't see it if you want serious Hamlet & poor Yorick, don't like onstage antics w/red balloons or a show w/a world view & a brain - this is smart fun

Quirky, Exciting, Ambitious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoy off-beat, progressive story telling. There are thrilling moments. The cast, direction, and design are cohesive in style.

Don't see it if Big and loud performances might bother you … you don’t enjoy very intimate venues… you don’t want a true theatrical in your face experience. Read more

Willett uses "Hamlet" as the vehicle for the story since it was a play centered on the Elizabethan view of inheritance as a right. Her play centers on a woman’s right to control her body. She also uses pregnancy and "morning-after" and "abortion" pills as elements in the story. While the topics dealt with are important, this production does not effectively deliver on those topics, not for want of trying, but because of the venue and some directorial choices. It reads better than it plays.

an in-your-face, vaudeville-infused dark comedy billed as “a post-Roe satire,” which is meant to be pointed, but winds up confusing….By the end of this overlong, overstuffed play, despite some barbed wit and a game and lively cast wrapped in some vivid costumes, the confusion has only grown.
