Romantic, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if If you like what Jamie Lloyd does, he puts this across with style and grace.

Don't see it if I felt the production shined in Act 1 but was less successful with the deeper emotions of the second act’s tragedies. Read more

Intense, Epic, Great staging

See it if Brilliant (even if more of the same) from Jamie Lloyd, really focusses on the words. Juliet actress is very, good 'the star' is just okay.

Don't see it if Expect to discover that Tom Holland is a great stage actor.
