Man. This is one of the funniest and clever adapatations I have ever seen. I needed a good laugh and a brush on my theater nerdary a gave me a dose of both. Highly recommend this! Go see it!... full review

Wow. What a ride. As an audience we're almost out of breath for these two brave young women that zip from character to character to abridge this timeless love story, with fresh comedy and a lot of spunk. Really, the number of characters they take on is incredible and the speed at which they convincingly comment on the story is impressive. Be sure to catch this one. It's short and sweet and definitely to the point. You will not be able to stop laughing. ... full review

A consistently hilarious mix of highbrow and lowbrow. The performers are fearless, inventive, and never less than fully committed. On top of all that, unexpectedly faithful to the spirit of the original play!... full review
TROY WHITELEY certified reviewer June 07, 2015
This is a must see show! Peggy Sinnott and Alison Elliot give an irreverent take on the classic, but overdone play by the famous bard. I had a front row seat to all the action. The two ladies were on top of their game as they hit the ground running with the oh, so famous opening sonnet. Within seconds I was laughing with little room to breathe and I did not stop until they did their bows and after show jig. If you are tired of seeing yet another take on R&J and want a reason to laugh at the play then come see this production from The Illyrian Players. You'll be glad you did. ... full review

Hilarious is an understatement for Two Girls, One Bard: Romeo & Juliet. This is a MUST SEE SHOW! Short and sweet- not to mention so freaking funny, I can honestly say I did not stop laughing throughout the entire 30-ish minute show. I may or may not have peed my pants on more than one occasion (sorry/not sorry) out of laughing too hard. Seeing these two ladies perform every single character (yes, every single character), sometimes portraying multiple characters in the same scene against each other and themselves, was fascinating, entertaining, and too funny for words. I will never read Romeo and Juliet the same way again after seeing this show – I’ll keep hoping the characters in the original will be like how Alison Elliott and Peggy Si... full review

Two Girls One Bard made me LAUGH OUT LOUD. Allison and Peggy are completely committed to all the characters and deliver hilarious performances! Whether you love (or hate) Shakespeare this show is a great time and you'll leave in a good mood. This show is creative, entertaining and not too long: a perfect show for fringe! See it! ... full review

AMIN EL GAMAL certified reviewer June 16, 2015
This is one of the funniest live shows I've seen in recent memory – clever, raunchy, goofy, literate and a total delight. Alison Elliott and Peggy Sinnott's performances are brilliantly funny and completely stupid. DO. NOT. MISS. IT.... full review

'Two Girls One Bard: Romeo & Juliet' was a fun piece of long form sketch comedy. I'm not usually into sillier pieces, but I had a blast in this tour de force R&J. Would love to see which of the Bard's pieces these ladies take on next!... full review
