Uneven acting, Weird cuts, Unsuccessful concept, Disappointing

See it if you want to support cast members, who try hard. Two are truly talented. I like when music is integrated w WS's words, but this didn't gel.

Don't see it if you have reasonable standards for NYC WS prodns. Director's work is not worthy. Story isn't well told. But Berowne and Maria have futures.

Fairly clear, Musical, Fun, Engaging

See it if you’d like to see a passably clear, engaging version of an infrequently performed Shakespeare comedy.

Don't see it if you have an aversion to pop music ca. 1964-69. Read more
