Imperfect shakespeare imperfectly but interestingly performed.

See it if I had never seen this play tho I was familiar with it. Small cast playing multiple roles mostly well, using minimal props and costumes.

Don't see it if You want a big production. You mind very uneven acting across the cast. Well staged but did get redundant.

Confusing, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if If you like Shakespeare themed plays with a complicated story line. Also if you enjoy long shows with a large cast.

Don't see it if If you like easier to understand plays and if you don't appreciate Shakespeare themed plays.

Times Square Chronicles
April 10th, 2019

"All of the actors have a keen sense of delivering Shakespeare’s verse which makes this production incredibly enjoyable...Brandon Walker (who directs as well) is in a league of his own because he excels at the dialogue and displays intentional and bold physicality...My two primary criticisms of the piece are this: If an accent is unnecessary, don’t add one; and if you want an actress to portray a strong minded woman, then she needs to embody that."

"Though an intermittently choppy journey, a final destination whose modernized performances and dauntless direction seamlessly transmute 1603 into 2019...Director Brandon Walker had fun with the set and the blocking, at impromptu moments breaking the fourth wall. It all worked to give the show a more modern salience, and keep our eyes glued to the unfolding drama."
