Disappointing, Julius caesar in 90 minutes.

See it if You can stand to listen to another woman shrieking Marc Antony. You dont need sets. You like modern dress Shakespeare

Don't see it if You dont like mixed media in Shakespeare. Brutus shooting himself offends you.

Great writing, Great acting, Resonant, Indulgent, Thought-provoking

See it if you are a fan of Shakespearean tragedy, esp. J.C., true to book, well delivered solliloqueys of Portia and M. Anthony, despite silly videos

Don't see it if you are turned off by gratuitous, silly modern video inserts, diverse casting not authentic to the roles, and no air conditioning mid-summer

Ambitious, Great writing, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you like Shakespeare and pared down versions of Julius Caesar in a small theater.

Don't see it if you want the full play, elaborate set and staging. The acting is a bit uneven, but there are some good performers in there.

Absorbing, Great writing, Relevant

See it if you are a Shakespeare fan; well done version; true to the script

Don't see it if you don't want to sit in a hot small theater; short videos not necessary to the story

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant, Relevant, Quirky

See it if You're a Shakespeare fan and don't mind an abridged version, modern dress and a mostly bare set

Don't see it if Shakespeare isn't your cup of tea or you prefer it classically staged

45
Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Dated

See it if you've always wanted the plot of a Shakespeare play explained to you in voiceover throughout the show so you can better understand it.

Don't see it if you are a Shakespeare purist.
