This was one of the most clever Shakespearian productions I've ever seen. The cast was magnificent! Even if you are unfamiliar with Shakespeare (the original script is used in the play) the storyline is told through the use of 50's through 70's...continued

A wonderful show. We attended a preview, so there were still a couple of rough spots (hence the four stars) but I am sure that those will be ironed out soon. My husband laughed so hard the row shook, and our boys were surprised to find that they...continued

I was worried about the play performed in old-style English, but the children in our party (ages 7 - 10) all understood and enjoyed it.

It was fun and exciting. My eleven-year-old was reluctant to come with me because she thought it would be boring, but she loved every minute of it.

This show was great-- really creative and funny, with well-selected music that highlighted what was happening in the story line (usually in a very amusing way). The cast was pretty wonderful, except that the young woman who played Hermia--...continued
