Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, 17th c female playwright!, Problematic subtitles

See it if you are a native speaker. VAYM is a worthy play in a worthy production. Acting is impressive, staging creative, costumes fabulous. Fun plot.

Don't see it if you aren't fluent in Sp. Subtitles are awful w signif lag btw spoken line & text. Can't watch the stage nor keep up w lines. Too much lost!

Classic with a twist, Well acted, Historically interesting

See it if you are interested in classical European theater & would like to see an infrequently performed example of it.

Don't see it if you do not understand Spanish & have trouble negotiating subtitles from a small screen on the seat in front of you--or even further. Read more
