About the Show

Art for Progress presents a new take on Shakespeare's romance, set in a world floating between the blurred morality and frenetic energy of a Vegas-like kingdom and the stark, colorful beauty of the American Southwest.

Uneven, Entertaining, Inaudible, Funny, Well intended

See it if You're up for a well intended but uneven and loosely directed Las Vegas update of this lesser-known Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You want a polished production, classically trained actors, or expect that a large cast of actors might be trained to project their voices. Read more

Disappointing, Amateurish

See it if You're into Shakespeare classics no matter how poorly they're interpreted or set into confusing frameworks.

Don't see it if You have no patience for modern day belittling of what is already great. The actors' hard efforts can't help this confusing production. Read more

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if You're looking for a very last minute off Broadway and maybe feeling charitable. All the processings are donated to a nonforprofit.

Don't see it if You can't handle amateur rendition of Shakespeare.
