See it if you enjoy Shakespeare! The casting was phenomenal. The story was told in a way that honored the time in which it was written & today.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy intimate and slightly interactive theater experiences.

See it if I’m a big fan of Shakespeare, so to see this live was truly incredible. I really liked the writing and how they adapted it for the stage.

Don't see it if Some people don’t like Shakespeare. Wouldn’t recommend for those who don’t like him!
