Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if You enjoy Shakespeare cleverly done. It is easily understood and the movement is comic and delightful.

Don't see it if You don’t like 2 1/2 hour plays.

Classic, Shakespeare, Funny, Staged in the round, Entertaining

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.

Clever, Entertaining, Delightful, Funny, Great acting

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.

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if you enjoy Shakespeare but don't want the weight of a tragedy in your evening.

Don't see it if you don't like Old English.

Refreshing, Masterful, Quirky, Hilarious, Must see

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!!!

Funny, Great writing, Great staging, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if You want a GREAT NY fun experience. A celebration during some tough times.

NY Theatre Guide
November 11th, 2015

"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."
