Good singing, Absorbing, Uneven editing, Uneven acting, Ambitious

See it if you like creative versions of WS's plays. Huge cast, w widely-varying degrees of talent. Enjoyable music before ea act and in Act I.

Don't see it if you require all strg actors. Or dislike deep text cuts wh undermine story (Cr's betrayal scene incoherent). Spirited, hardworking ensemble.

Great music at the breaks, Action-packed, Fast, Truncated, Smart

See it if you’d like a fast, smart, fully female accounting of a touching but somewhat problematic Shakespeare play, a love story in time of war.

Don't see it if the idea of an all female world disturbs you or you are expecting the full original play. Read more
