Loved it., Great band, Delightful, Great singing, Great concept

See it if Great evening of Cabaret. Talented cast has you hearing lyrics, not soliloquies. Band is amazing. I had a great time.

Don't see it if I wholly recommend it.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great singing

See it if you like the classic work of Shakespeare, having a good time, and a dazzling musical score

Don't see it if you prefer the classics to stay as they were written

"The players in this New York debut were young, attractive, enthusiastic, charming, and in fine voice, if not always up to the challenge of enunciating the poetry and putting it across…To realize its potential, the show needs a seasoned stage director....The band, especially the drummer, almost always overwhelmed the voices and therefore blotted out the words—always a sin in sung music. But when the words are Shakespeare’s, it felt more like a crime.”
