What I liked

The concept worked very well. The way these ladies brought Shakespeares words imto existence hit me hard at times with how so much of it rings true with today’s climate. There were moments they moved me to laughter and moments where they moved me to tears. There were even mome ts of “Yassss girrrl!”.

What I didn't like

I would venture a guess that the wearing of street clothes was to bring the characters into modern days. For me personally it was distracting. I would have better been able to lose myself in the performance had they been all in black say.

My overall impression

Shakespeare in and of itself can be incredibly thought provoking and moving. What these ladies have created here, elevates that beyond anything I could have expected.
