Masterful, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you want you Shakespeare done in the spirit of the 16th societal challenges Shakespeare's writing embraces.

Don't see it if you need a 19th/20th century version suitable to be viewed by Queen Victoria Read more

Funny, Enchanting, Delightful, Great acting, Clever

See it if You love Shakespeare's comedies, particularly when performed by a troupe of talented young people.

Don't see it if You don't like gender bending of old plays.

Decent but not great, Gender-bent stacked on original gender bending, Lovely violin, viola, guitar & voice music

See it if You’d like this gender-bent play more confusing & gender-bent than original & love Shakespeare in any shape or form. Female Orlando.

Don't see it if you can’t climb 4 flights or sit through nearly 3 hours of Shakespeare. Read more

Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky, Clever

See it if you appreciate the sarcastic humor in Shakespeare's comedies

Don't see it if you don't like actors playing multiple/cross-gender roles or minimal sets/lighting.

75
Too long, Entertaining, Confusing, Great band, Overrated

See it if Gender bending lead; low budget production at a studio space; talented young actors know bard’s words well; musicians light up gloomy space

Don't see it if Odor (due to no budget for costume laundry & small space I guess); 4 floor stairs to climb; bare set and tiring seats; long queue for WC

Delightful

See it if into a lovely interpretation of THAT crowd favorite

Don't see it if well - it is still Shakespeare... theater requires a 4-floor climb. Read more

Slow, Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You're a Shakespeare fan who is comfortable listening to that manner of speaking; ambitious acting; intimate venue.

Don't see it if You don't understand the Shakespearean way of speaking (which I didn't); gave up midway through and left. Uncomfortable bridge chairs. Read more

Ambitious, Refreshing, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if You love a new spin on one of Shakespeare’s light plays. They are creative with staging and set design.

Don't see it if You’re looking for heavy costuming and staging for a classic play.
