What a fun show! Shakespeare's comedy gets a new and very modern take on this tale of love with aliens dropping in to stir things up. Very clever use of items purchased at the 99 Cent Store to create outer space props that light up, and allowing the audience to participate by handing out glow sticks to wave at appropriate moments.Excellent musical and sound effects accompaniment by Greg Nicolett. Classic Shakespeare lines from many of his plays and thrown in throughout, which garnered lots of laughs from the audience. Life is but a walking shadow.... takes on new meaning!... full review

Once you give in to the silliness you're in for a fun ride... Like the other reviewers, however, I wanted even more silliness. I mean if you're gonna do aliens with Shakespeare, let's see more aliens! At this point we don't even care about plot, so when the aliens disappeared for a while I was a little bummed. But over all it was a good time. I especially liked the use of live music/sound effects.... full review
