CHRISTOPHER MCKENZIE certified reviewer June 20, 2015
Yes yes yes. Authentic Shakespeare theatre with a U Shape audience and cast performing in the aisles. Boys playing girls and girls playing boys - Shakespeare again. Adlib sarcasm and over the top characters. Audience integration ... This is it; this yes what is supposed to be. Just fantastic.... full review

I don't have enough good things to say about this show. It was so moving in all the best ways! I found myself captivated by the characters and concept, and just a puddle of a weeping mess but the end. Thank you for going there, Queer Classics!... full review

The adaptation, by Mike Wamser and Casey Kringlen, is an edited but essentially faithful production of the play, minus the Christopher Sly framing device. Kringlen, who also directs, conceives the play as a comic romp in the style of I Love Lucy. As both Lucy and Shrew are highly physical farces which send up masculine/feminine conventions, this seems a strong, though not surprising, choice. Where Kringlen gets transgressive is in the gender-bending casting of the roles. Full review at "original article."... full review

Such a brilliant show! A beautiful expression of gender identity and sexuality. The actors were all phenomenal and had great comedic timing. The director took great care adapting the script and not cutting into the original script too much. A great experience!... full review
