My overall impression

The cast did a fantastic job with limited time and resources! Thoroughly impressed with their performances!

This is how Shakespeare should be approached, minimal prep, minimal props and costumes! It was meant to be seen as a traveling show and that setting, although in a venue, allows the actors have freedom to really experiment in the moment and bring out different aspects of the characters!

This is one of the more entertaining performances I have seen and the concept of how they decide the show is very fun!

I give credit to the actress who played the soldiers in our rendition of Much Ado About Nothing! She had to play two different roles that she NAILED!! In her other part (she was double cast) she gave us a whole different level and the audience was rolling in laughter!

The entire cast was on it and even added to the dialogue with their own inner comments that were made vocal which only added to the simplicity and last-minute nature of this show!

Highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed setting and great laughs!
