My overall impression

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
