Great acting, Refreshing, Intense, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy seeing the Bard's play in an exciting new setting with gender pronoun changes on a small stage that uses the entire auditorium.

Don't see it if you want the traditional play or if you have difficulty with a wordy play that lasts nearly two hours without an intermission.

Don't see it if you like your Shakespeare as God intended, thank you very much! Read more
