See it if you want to see a very entertaining outdoor show in a relaxed setting. Great acting and direction.
Don't see it if you don't want a show that steals and perverts Shakespeare's characters and plot lines and goes for a very silly ending
See it if you love Shakespeare in a COVID-safe outdoor setting and appreciate a panoramic presentation that is enthusiastically performed
Don't see it if it appalls you to see King Lear performed with a happy ending, even if this ending was standard practice for centuries
"Much of the production is a fast-moving, tightly edited 'Lear,' until the wrap-up, in which the monarchy is restored, lovers are reunited, villains are vanquished, and virtue is generally triumphant...It has the effect of diluting what may be Shakespeare's greatest work; a kind of premodern glimpse into an abyss of evil becomes a furious melodrama that ends surprisingly, unconvincingly well...In any case, the cast's enthusiasm and evident of love of language make the evening a positive pleasure."
