Benedick and Beatrice trade barbs and match wits under the Theater Tent:

Hilarious, Great staging, Great acting, Funny, Delightful

See it if You want to see some very solidly directed Shakespeare in a very beautiful setting.

Don't see it if You dislike very by-the-book interpretations of Shakespeare's works and are only looking for more avant-garde Shakespeare.

Also "Nor sequent centuries could hit Orbit and sum of Shakespeare’s wit.” ... Read more Read less

See it if You’ve seen this play done before. Fresh take on the Benedick Beatrice battle.

Don't see it if You have little patience with outdoor theater. A little hard to hear from the last row. But we know the story, right?

See it if This production was a lot of fun. It was at an outdoor theater which added to its charm. The actors were terrific.

Don't see it if You really hate Shakespeare.

See it if you would like a pleasant evening in beautiful surroundings

Don't see it if You would regret missing the subtleties in Shakespeare's play

Clever, Great staging, Delightful

See it if You like to enjoy a summer theatre at a picturesque setting. Love how the actors leveraged the simple staging to interact. Family friendly.

Don't see it if You don’t like rendition of the classic script and of course if you don’t like Shakespeare.

See it if It does play a lot on the cliché of boy meets girl,they don’t like each other,but then they do. If you do like that cliché-comedy,go for it

Don't see it if You don’t like clichés such I really suggest not watching it. Also if the actors don’t execute their roles it does take away from the story.
