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.

Absorbing, Fresh, Classic

See it if Repertorio Espanol's classic plays are always such a treat- and this was no different. Incredible entrance into a 500 yr old text!

Don't see it if An old text (one of the 1st Ren plays) brought to life, so no complaints. Rep E. provides such a service to the city and theater ecoystems. Read more

Educational, Great acting, Classical

See it if you are intrigued by a XV c. work, explicit about sexual mores, presenting a tragedy tinged by humor.

Don't see it if you don't like old-fashioned plays whose characters respond to outmoded norms of conduct.

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.

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
