Entertaining, Quirky, Great acting, Clever, Dizzying

See it if you'd enjoy a new take on this play. I found it fast paced and difficult to keep up with the wordiness but enjoyed it overall. Music a +.

Don't see it if you want the traditional play or you do not like intimate spaces with basic staging and actors coming at you from all directions.

Don't see it if You don't like verse plays. You want to see a less performed Shakespeare play. You want a play w/bigger production values.

Clever, Great acting, Delightful, Enchanting, Quirky

See it if You love the Bard (or at least the comedies) and want to see a slightly off-beat version of it.

Don't see it if You're expecting a play about Shakespeare and not the material itself. Somehow the promotional material confused me.

Clever, Funny

See it if You like this play specifically or Shakespeare's comedies generally - this is a decent production; mostly well-acted and staged.

Don't see it if You don't like framing devices - here it sort of trashed the ending; it's supposed to be upbeat and fun and here it ... just wasn't.
