Great use of outdoor space, Well spoken, Several great performances, Sometimes magical, Summer evening well spent

See it if you like your Shakespeare free, well spoken, & without pretense. Pull up a picnic table & feast while you enjoy. A summer evening well spent

Don't see it if you are distracted by garbage trucks, ambulances & other city noise that is constantly intrusive

Fun, Outdoors, Energetic, Cool use of the space

See it if You want a fun, entertaining evening outdoors in a quirky space that the cast makes inventive use of. Take a picnic and or your kids.

Don't see it if A non-traditional space with no raised stage and uncomfortably rickety metal seats would spoil your evening.

Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if like straight-forward, compelling productions of Shakespeare, enjoy outdoor theatre, are on a budget (it's free!).

Don't see it if you're distracted by playground/street noises, are looking for something somber, can't imagine Shakespeare with gender-fluid casting.
