Great staging, great energy,, Funny, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You like mash ups of old favorites. You want to hear Shakespeare's verse manhandled- often successfully- in a variety of ways.

Don't see it if you want lush production. Cant follow parallel stories with overlapping and echoed dialogue. Read more

"'The Bride' is a play for Shakespeare aficionados. In the grand scope of the canon, these two are probably somewhere in the lower middle tier of popularity. That being said, the clarity is not here...As the story unfolds, 'The Bride' is not quite a weaving, it's more like patchwork...Even if you have difficulty following along, where 'The Bride' succeeds is in the consistent physical vocabulary in direction and utilization of instruments and integration of music."
