What I liked

This Fringe show caught an early buzz and it pretty much lives up to it. A deeply disturbed middle school teacher going through a brutal divorce leads his young charges into a production of Shakespeare’s most violent play. It’s moment of personal revelation and revenge for him, and it could be more of one for some of his students, too. There’s plenty of laughs, mostly in the early going, and behandings, betongueings, patricide, matricide, regicide, cannibalism and buckets and buckets of blood. The young performers capably pull it all off … and they do it on a school night, too.

What I didn't like

Shakespeare! Titus Andronicus?! ON A SCHOOL NIGHT??
