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

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

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.
