I'd been told to go see this show, so I finally made time to do so--and I'm glad I did. In 45 mins, these four actors did an AMAZING job of improvising several scenes of Shakespeare where they didn't know which character they would be until that show began. Now let's be clear--that means they know ALL the lines and characters for ALL the scenes, so it's not like they're making it up from scratch. But even still, to have all the possible combinations and then have to leap into it at a moment's notice is a tough job--and they do it both admirably and VERY well, including men playing women and vice versa. There wasn't a bad scene in the group, although some scene most definitely worked better than others. The good news is at 45 mins, NO s... full review

Clever and full of energy, they find the humor and torment behind the words. And the whole show's conceit plays perfectly in the 3 Clubs space.... full review

It's not very often that I enjoy people doing scenes and monologues from Shakespeare, but this is put together so well, with such charming conceits, I can't help but adore it. ... full review

50 shades was a great show that I would definitely see again. It makes Shakespeare accessible to a modern audience and is a fun look at the different stages of love through his plays. ... full review

One of my favorite shows of HFF16. Talented cast and brilliant depictions of some of the Bard's sexiest scenes. Don't miss it!... full review

This might just be my favorite of the 6 shows I've seen so far this year at HFF16. The cast is so talented and it's just a fun time from start to finish. Everyone loves a good gender swap here and there, but their interpretation of certain scenes was beautiful.... full review

Fast-paced, funny, sexy totally unpredictable. This is not your typical LA (bad) Shakespeare. These actors know what they're doing, are confident and assured with the material, and are so so SO much fun to watch. A great raunchy night out with the Bard.... full review
