"A hip retelling of the classic comedy...The company on a whole has done a good job of framing the verse so that it’s accessible to most audiences and has found the buffoonery and humor in the nuances of the text. Offline combines music, comedy, and solid classical performance to make the evening a memorable jaunt into a classical tale." Full Review
See it if you enjoy Shakespearean comedies,
Don't see it if you expect Fiasco can always deliver at the level of its CYMBELINE and INTO THE WOODS. Worth seeing, but not up to those.
See it if you want to see why Shakespeare's plays have lasted so long. This is a modern look at love in a mixed up world where identities get lost.
Don't see it if you are a purest about your Shakespeare or have no imagination because the sets are bare and actors play several roles. Might confuse you.
See it if you want to see a modern, hilarious staging of a Shakespearean comedy. Amazing downtown theater: multiethnic, transgenderfluid,hiphop. Fun!!
Don't see it if u r dead in the soul or demand extravagant staging. This is done with the audience sitting around the stage like a boxing ring. Go see it!!!
See it if You are a Shakespeare fan and enjoy seeing his classic plays done on stage.
Don't see it if You don't like or don't understand Shakespearean plays. You will be confused unless you read a synopsis beforehand.

Don't see it if You get tripped up by Shakespearean language

Don't see it if Have hearing problems - no hearing assistance and the dialog can get lost
See it if You want to see the community get involved in theater, and bring joy and love to the stage.
Don't see it if You're a Shakespeare purist, or even an enthusiast: they only use some of the text, and could have used more.
See it if you want to laugh your face off and also tear up with sympathy at the bizarre hijinks of a society that amounts to another world.
Don't see it if you're a sourpuss. You might not laugh, and it deserves to be laughed at.
See it if The set, acting, music, everything was beautiful. It was set in the 1930s for this company's version. A hilarious tale from Shakespeare.
Don't see it if It can be confusing if the actor/actress plays both roles of brother and sister. Its a tale of mistaken identity and love.
See it if you're a Shakespeare fan, you enjoy romantic comedy, and you like mischief and mayhem abounding.
