How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Wooden acting from some actors, over-acting from others. Modern day dress that makes no sense and is downright silly in a couple of instances. Most important of all, there should never, ever, be any laughs in Sophocles. There is nothing funny in this play, and having Clytemnestra portrayed like a latter-day Bette Davis was just lame. This was really poorly conceived and completely misdirected. Not even the presence of Dukakis can help this one.
