Fantastic ensemble work. This is a great show with a laugh a second. This is fit for any audience, but Shakespeare buffs will have an extra appreciation for the witty interweaving of various plots. I recommend you attend this show early so you have time to see it again. It's worth it.... full review

If you need your Shakespeare fix at the 2013 HFF, here it is! HILARIOUS TO THE POINT OF RUPTURE OR RAPTURE. THIS SHOW IS AN ACE. The cast are dynamic in that they are both classically trained and uninhibited comedic maniacs. I came early and wasn't sure I had the energy after such a late night but they were better than a cup of coffee. Every singe person was spot on in this inventive mash-up of the Bard's most memorable works. There is such irreverence and reverence at the same time for Shakespeare fans to gawk at. The culture references were brilliant and never once did it break the lovely world of meter and rhyme. Congrats to the Flynnsmen for one of my favorite comedies of the Fringe!!!!!!! love, MSF... full review

Non stop laughs from start to finish, King Phycus is sure to please. While an understanding of Shakespeare's most famous works are helpful, it is certainly not a prerequisite. Props to these six talented actors and the funniest curtain call I've ever witnessed! ... full review

Phycus ruled!!! This is a great show where the cast has multiple roles, all of which dazzle the brain while jogging your memory of so many great Shakespeare plays. Witty, funny, just modern enough, and a great ensemble that work with each other on seemingly psychic levels. This was actually my second time seeing the show (the first was last year at Anteus/Deaf West) and I loved both!! G.E... full review

OMG SO CLEVER AND FUNNY! I just about died laughing. So witty! So many references! So much iambic pentameter! I think this must be what would have happened if the makers of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" had decided to parody Shakespeare. Might not be for everyone -- I have a difficult time imagining a few dozen of your average theatergoers getting all of the humor -- but definitely my cup of tea.... full review

That was the most fun I've had at the theater in quite some time! This cast is just fantastic. Their energy drives this fast paced production, and manages to harmoniously bring together Shakespeare's greatest hits. Jason Thomas plays both Hamlet and Romeo which requires some totally hilarious quick changes backstage. Jason Thomas rules. His many unique characters showcased an amazing array of talent and reminded you of why theater is considered a sport to actors. The whole cast just kills it. Literally...It is Shakespeare after all, so (spoiler alert) everybody dies...... full review

Wow. I'll need to see it again to catch all the jokes I missed while laughing. Layers and layers of lampoon through clever references and wordplay. If you're a fan of Shakespeare, clever writing and have any sense of humor, do yourself a favor. ... full review
