From the show:
For the first time since 1979, Free Shakespeare in the Park presents "Coriolanus," the Bard’s blistering drama about a general voted into power by a populace hungry for change, and the unraveling that follows. Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Shakespeare In The Park’s Troilus and Cressida) directs a modern-day version of this riveting epic of democracy and demagoguery.
See it if you are bored and like joining the lottery. The second half is less boring than the first half, but the whole show is a dragging bore
Don't see it if Even if you haven't seen Coriolanus I wouldn't recommend this, just pay to watch something that's actually entertaining. You've been warned!
See it if You like Shakespeare and you like the institution of Free Shakespeare in the Park.
Don't see it if You have no tolerance for actors who sound like they're reading words off a page as they navigate sloppy direction and staging.
