One of the most fun shows I have seen in a long time and I would see it again ! Rap and rhyme and song dance - fast paced, small VERY TALENTED cast playing multiple characters. DONT MISS THIS SHOW !!

One of the best shows I've seen! Delivery was spot on, and the beats were bumping. Laughed throughout the show even though its a tragedy! I'd recommend this to any fan of Shakespeare and/or hip-hop. Five Stars!
