Review by JOSHUA VERGES

June 03, 2018 certified reviewer

What I liked

It is stellar contemporary Shakespeare with on-point casting and gender-bending casting decisions that deepen character arcs while simultaneously — and beautifully — enriching the story. Rebekah Tripp, Paul Eiding, Mauricio Amoretti, Connor Kelly-Eiding are all truth here, brilliantly coming alive within an equally adept cast. A fast-paced, cut-the-fat Shakespeare show that is well, well worth your time.

What I didn't like

Soundtrack may have been too loud at times.

My overall impression

A crucial production among 2018’s Hollywood Fringe Festival.
