What I liked

I do not know much Shakespear, so I was a little afraid that I would be lost. But this play was easy to follow, funny, and true to the story (that I googled before I went) so that I feel like I could now understand Hamlet now. I really enjoyed the way all of the actors became involved in the play, a very clever way to introduce the characters. And I loved the comedic aspect that made what could be a very dark play, fun and lighthearted. A very good job.

What I didn't like

I did get lost on one or two of the speeches that must have been right out of Hamlet (alot of old english). I do understand that it was necessary to the play since they were performing a Shakespear play, but it was a bit confusing for me.

My overall impression

I was pleasantly surprised – I really enjoyed this! Great job.

Jessie's Messy Mind

A "crazy" solo show that makes a mental difference. Jessie is an artist with schizo-affective whose show is a refreshing, humorous look into the heart of mental difference. You'll either leave enlightened or simply lightened up!

Five Pieces of Paper

How do you tell a story about the Holocaust without it being overwhelming? You sing in Yiddish, act, tell stories, puppeteer, clown, and bake... “Beautifully courageous and authentic performance. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved.”
