I'd been told to go see this show, so I finally made time to do so--and I'm glad I did. In 45 mins, these four actors did an AMAZING job of improvising several scenes of Shakespeare where they didn't know which character they would be until that show began. Now let's be clear--that means they know ALL the lines and characters for ALL the scenes, so it's not like they're making it up from scratch.

This might just be my favorite of the 6 shows I've seen so far this year at HFF16. The cast is so talented and it's just a fun time from start to finish. Everyone loves a good gender swap here and there, but their interpretation of certain scenes was beautiful.... full review

Run, don't walk to see 50 Shades of Shakespeare. The cast and crew have done an amazing job bringing the steamiest scenes to life in a gender bend sex romp. You will be glad you came (and are welcome to come again!)! ... full review
