Disappointing, Ambitious, Great costumes, Overwritten, Tedious

See it if You want to see a spectacular cast doing their very best with material that seldom reaches the heights you expect from this cast/creative.

Don't see it if You expect a hilarious, campy, sharp or fully realized evening. Read more

Dizzying, Confusing, Quirky, Great writing, Fluffy

See it if you can appreciate all that is conveyed in rhyme, you want some light entertainment and some fun moments, you are patient for the good part.

Don't see it if actors projecting at different levels is irritating, some inaudible, have difficulty with a warm theater & an uncomfortable seat for 2 hrs.

New York Theater
October 24th, 2021

The recipe for Fairycakes: Start with a cast of beloved New York stage actors known for their comic flair .... stick rhyming couplets in their mouths and dress them in the most colorful costumes of the season, then dump them in a pan of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Pour in a heavy mash up of fairy and folk tales .. .mix, until unrecognizable. Then serve the resulting concoction both half-baked and overdone.
