Entertaining, Fluffy, Great staging, Dizzying, Ambitious

See it if you would enjoy a good group of international actors bringing a 15th Century play of tragedy and comedy to life on a small stage.

Don't see it if you do not understand Spanish. The supertitles do not share enough of the action at points and at other times are too quick.

Taut, Focused, Gripping, Well played, Historically fascinating

See it if you're interested in Renaissance literature or culture, or just want to see a gripping tale of love & death clearly & powerfully played.

Don't see it if you do not understand Spanish & can’t negotiate supertitles. (I found them very easy to use.) Read more

Romantic, Absorbing, Great writing, Entertaining, Dated

See it if you speak Spanish well enough to understand the beautiful dialogue or can exult in the cadence of the language even if you do not understand

Don't see it if you are put off by a language you do not speak or a old fashioned drama of passion and destruction. Drama written in 1492 about love/death

Dated, Different, Slow, Classic, Tragic

See it if you are interested in foreign language productions. You want a different experience. You enjoy classic, traditionally staged plays.

Don't see it if this tragedy from the 15th century is dated and slow. Due to its nature the acting is less beleivable at times.
