Clever, Intelligent, Refreshing, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy the exploration of "what if?" when it comes to adaptations of Shakespeare, and if you like to see a female-centric story.

Don't see it if it would bother you too much for famous lines from Hamlet to be spoken by other characters in different scenes than the original.

Original, Quirky, A little long, Topical

See it if you're open to adapatations of Shakespeare that have very little to do with the original play, and you like female-centric shows.

Don't see it if if you're impatient with lots of liberties being taken with the story, uneven acting and a very spare production.
