Clever premise, Uneven acting, Strong staging, Almost 2 hrs, Barebones

See it if you like new takes: R+J thru eyes of teenage girl. Youthful cast of 6 (4 w, 2 m) play all roles. In the round. No intermsn. Lacks emotion.

Don't see it if you want gr WS acting. Only Pisano shines (R&J disappoint). Commentary lost in last 1/3, was missed. Fun dancing. Study plot beforehand.

Clever, Entertaining, Intelligent, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if you want a new take on the Shakespeare play set in contemporary dress with commentary by a young, first-time reader of the work.

Don't see it if you want the original play. It ran a bit long and the metal, folding chairs made for an uncomfortable evening.

Times Square Chronicles
January 21st, 2019

“Gold’s adaptation and direction tells the age old story through a youthful and feminist lens...The framing device of delivering the story through the lens of Maddie’s world is very successful. It is clear that Maddie is in control of how the story is perceived...The movement of the piece is fluid with quick fight choreography and charming dance choreography...It is always pleasant to enjoy an old story with a new twist, and Pocket Universe’s production gets it just right.”
