Entertaining, Great acting, Charming, Intelligent, Bare bones

See it if you're charmed by this comedy, acted with keen, admirable fervor. No sets, tiny stage, but original music & great costumes fill the bill!

Don't see it if you need fleshed-out staging, dislike actors in dual roles. My peeve—audience members with no filter on brash laughter & shout-outs to cast.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Delightful

See it if you want some music with your Shakespeare as well as simple sets and engaged performers delighting you with the bard's romantic words.

Don't see it if you desire a more elaborate staging and a professional acting ensemble. These actors have fun with their roles and we enjoy their enjoyment.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Minimalist

See it if you like an intro to this Shakespearean play in its minimalist/abridged form and don't mind a minimalist production - in set/costume & cast.

Don't see it if you want a big production /period set & costume design typical of Shakespeare. But as consolation it makes you concentrate on the dialogues.
