See it if If you stoppard at his zanniest. Funny with s twist to Shakespeare's vernacular. First short is a hoot, 2end ,not as.
Don't see it if Your a Shakespeare purist or if you do not like zany or absurdist theater.
See it if u want to see early Stoppard at his zaniest & typically subversive best in an expertly directed & well-performed pair of rebellious farces.
Don't see it if you aren't at least moderately familiar with Hamlet & Macbeth; you aren't willing to put in a little effort to follow a new language (Dogg).
★★★★ "PTP/NYC's 13th New York season comprises a pair of productions that reflect the company's commitment to major international playwrights..."
"Stoppard's word fun with Shakespeare and subversion in 'DOGG'S HAMLET, CAHOOT'S MACBETH' at Potomac Theater Project"
"Two 40-year-old playlets are linked by an overlapping character and a made-up lingo."
"…this exuberant revival of Stoppard’s 1979 two one-act plays cheekily satirize the theater and political oppression. He ingeniously appropriates Shakespeare for his own ingenious purposes. The magnetic ensemble all achieve zesty characterizations in their various roles."
"The cast brings great commitment and energy…the action is very physical and if you find yourself growing tired of the wordplay, you'll still find the staging satisfying...But your enjoyment will be enhanced if you Google underground theatre in Czechoslovakia."
