Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Family friendly

See it if You want to see a great production done that's not the most common Shakespeare to be performed.

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.
