Great acting, Great staging, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if Full Cast of talented 30 somethings grab this classic by its throat and do a great job of telling the tale of betrayal and revenge in a comp

Don't see it if you are just Caesared out.

Also in a compelling way. small theatre seating 90, gets all a front row seat for the action. My third Caesar in NY this summer but the one most absorbing.

Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Relevant, Clever

See it if you enjoy exciting modern takes on Shakespeare, you want to see diversity on stage, you want to see some women kill classic male roles :)

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

Also I was pleasantly surprised by this production I have to say. The Gallery Players is known to be...inconsistent. But this was a really engaging and detail piece of Shakespeare which is mostly due to the strong ensemble of actors who were invested and skilled with the text. I am really glad I saw this production. Kudos to the designers as well, the design really enhanced the production. Hopefully Gallery Players keeps up the good work.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Relevant

See it if You like classic story reincarnation in a minimalist dystopian. The acting was relatable with on-point monologue and annunciation. Solid.

Don't see it if You're into fancy scenery, costume and lighting. This is low-tech but intense. The power of acting and your imagination will transform you.
