What I liked

The performances were solid and the direction made good use of the space. While it’s an abridged version of the play, all the moments you remember and love are there. Plus, who doesn’t love free drinks?

What I didn't like

I do feel like this is mislabeled. It’s not immersive theater. In fact, other than the free drinks and casual setting/costumes, this is about as traditional as theater gets.

My overall impression

Strong performances in a non-traditional setting make this a unique and fun night of Shakespeare, as long as you’re not expecting anything other than it is.
