CHARLES ZIARKO certified reviewer June 07, 2017
You don't have to know Shakespeare to enjoy this high-energy romp through his canon, but, on the other hand, you won't actually learn anything either! Three high-energy local actors tackle a long-running parody that has entertained audiences in English-speaking venues for many years, and wrestle it into submission. The "Complete Works" ARE represented (38 in all) but most of the show is devoted to Shakespeare's own "tentpoles": HAMLET (30 minutes, including unexpected "audience participation") and ROMEO AND JULIET (17 minutes, early on). ... full review

I am so lucky to have stumbled upon this show. The ticket prices are extremely low ($20) considering the endless fun and laughter that the actors bring. A must see!... full review

While this show might be best suited for those with a foundation of Shakespearean knowledge (though being a total Shakespeare aficionado isn't necessary), the show's infectious energy and the actors' comedic skills and commitment make for a super engaging 90 minutes that include A LOT of laughter!!... full review
RUSSELL EATON certified reviewer June 16, 2017
This is a frantic race through the Bard’s classics (and a few of his not so classic pieces). Slapstick, puns, over the top fisticuffs and an outlandish tendency to portray all female roles with an outrageous sense of melodrama and unfortunate choice in wig styles – it’s all here and it’s all fun! The cast of Paul green, Jordan Merrimee and Dorian Tayler seem to have no fear of doing anything for a laugh. They are having a blast and their excitement is infectious!... full review

The cast worked so well together and had impeccable comedic rapport! This was a show filled with great fun. I reccomend front row seating for a memorable time and nearly painful bouts of laughter. ... full review
