Entertaining, Confusing, Slow, Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if You’re curious to see how two people can condense Richard III down to 50 minutes and two performers. Valiant attempt. Great costumes.

Don't see it if You expect any sort of full story whatsoever. I found this hard to follow. Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, somewhat strict Shakespeare. Read more

Confusing, Intense, Great acting, Dizzying, Ambitious

See it if you would enjoy a quick 40-minute take on Shakespeare's play, Richard III. Two fully committed actors on an interesting small stage.

Don't see it if you don't know the full play as it goes so fast with one actor playing multiple roles. Sound, while good, overpowered voices at times.
