How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A stark staging of the classic, with some better performances then others... Extremely long! Such is Shakespeare though. Seemed to lack the lust and love one would come to expect with this epic tale of two of the worlds greatest lovers. Cleo is bold and heavy voiced but lacking the refinement and charms we long for in the Greek woman who became Queen. Costumes are funky at times and the sets are odd and austere. Antony is played by the artistic director and also directed the play, so... A Noise Within is in a new space complete with lots of plastic, new carpet fumes, concert corridors and makeshift concession stands, but no wine, natural or upscale appetizing munchies - Just lots of junk snacks, candy and soda. It's a looooooong time with nothing to hold you over. Especially tough with all the drinking going on on stage! Kinda disappointing....

Help others enjoy a great night out
