How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I was given terrible seats in a house less than half-full. After spending act one seeing the backsides of the actors, I moved at intermission. Among the poorer of the 50 or so Shakespeare productions I have seen. Most of the cast (with the notable exception of Diane D'Aquila as Volumnia) had no sense of how to use the verse. The images that stick in the mind are Coriolanus screaming and the cast beating on drums. It's next to the Verizon Center, so leave extra time if there is an event there.
