This. Was. Amazing. Seriously, I cannot say enough good things about it. The writing and the production was great, and the performance was absolutely phenomenal. All 4 of the performers (and the multiple parts they played) worked together seamlessly, trading rhymes back and forth, always staying on beat, and at times, switching from character to character in a way that left no confusion in the audience's eyes. If you're not a Shakespeare fan - doesn't matter, you need to see this. I know I'll be going again at least once or twice before the run ends.

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 this Shakespeare classic. I believe people gave his production great reviews...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Highly recommended! To cut to the chase: the 90-minute, lightening-fast, hip-hop version of Shakespeare’s tragic tale is absolutely brilliant and immense fun!“—_Chicago Sun-Times _
“A killer show … the Q Brothers’ best yet! Their writing is superb: sardonic, wise, smart, funny and, of course, mostly in rhyming couplets.“—Chicago Tribune (4 Stars)
Othello: The Remix is recommended for mature audiences.
