This show is not my favorite art form. It is LOUD and RAUCOUS, or seemed so to me. And, the performance has very little to do with Shakespere. In fact, I HATED it so much I had to leave the performance area and wait for the intermission in the...continued

The show was terrible. Shakespere must be turning over in his grave. We kept waiting for it to get better but it got worse so we left at the intermission.

If you like your plays to be nothing but stream-of-consciousness, run-on, back to back, unending, pins-in the eyes_ 'why is God so mad at me to torture me so?’ nonsensical lines...then this is your play. If you, in a twisted, dysfunctional way,...continued

Good music, funny cast; loaded with sexual innuendos... a little is funny, but over the top is a put-off. Won't go back.

The show was a new experience for us and we enjoyed it tremendously. It was funny, entertaining and audience interaction was great. The performers were all excellent singers, dancers and comedians. We wil definitely seek out another "troubie"...continued

It was incredible fun. Actually made Shakespeare understandable, and funny to boot.
We had a party of 8 and everyone had a great time.

Just wonderful! An inspired mash-up of Shakespeare and slapstick.

Warning, only go to a Troubie show if you are prepared for uncontrollable laughter. When the actor walked out with the lion costume on backwards, with the tail hanging down from his waist, so he turned the head around and walked backwards, and...continued

Go, go, go!!! You will laugh from beginning to end. Even if you're not a fan of Shakespeare, and even if you don't like the Bee Gees, just GO. You will be in hysterics the whole time. They have made a Troubies fan out of me for life.

Awesome, Funny, Innovative, Entertaining and enjoyed the total experience of melting classic with the Bee-Gee's, as I love both. As always, love Goldstar events.

NOTE: Because the play used a lot of the main theater floor, we were not able to...continued

I have never seen a Troubie show that didn't crack me up! Great show ideas, hysterical physical comedy, sly jokes, and slightly (sometimes a little more) raunchy attitudes make for a night to remember. If you can handle some craziness, don't miss...continued

Loved it! It was the first time for my daughter and me seeing the Troubies and we laughed the whole way through. Excellent show!

We enjoyed the production tremendously. The contemporary dialouge interwoven with Shakespeare's play was hysterical and clever. Costumes were creative and the actors/actresses multi talented, assuming various roles. We will support this theatre...continued

We've seen lots of the troubie shows over the years, but this has to be one of the best !! They pulled out all the stops & kept us rolling in the aisles for the entire show. They omitted the 'You're So Vain' portion, but that missing piece was...continued

So much fun. If you like Saturday Night Fever era music and mix in Shakespeare you will enjoy this immensely. I really like this venue. Usually plenty of room available.

If you think the classics are too high-brow for you, the Troubies may be just what you're looking for. Mashing up Shakespeare with the Bee Gees makes it all very approachable and lots of fun. The actors are all skillful comedians and the band...continued
