All I could think of after leaving the show in first 20 minutes was WHY? Swear words and loud music. That's all I got out of the frankly cringe worthy performance of... continued

Terrific retelling of Shakespeare's original in a high energy, totally engrossing contemporary setting. Very imaginative and humorous while retaining the power of the original intent. The performance flew by and held my attention from the beginning.

I honestly can't say that I enjoy this form of music -- but this was a fun experience. It's ironic that I often have a difficult time understanding the Bard's lines when... continued

The show was excellent. The Q Brothers never fail to entertain. I have never laughed so much during a performance of Othello - but it still held true to the tragic truths of the Bards original. Great Show!

There was not a bad seat in the house because the theater was so intimate. I would really love to take my students to see this because they would have loved this rendition of Othello. I thoroughly enjoyed this play.
