Review from Ted

This "play" was incredibly disappointing. It was more like a frat house gag show than an effort to actually synthesize Shakespeare's work into one piece. There was great potential in the concept for creating something inventive, suprising, funny,...continued

Review from Rissa B.

I found it to be more silly than funny, which is really a shame because I was really looking forward to this play.

Review from David C.

Three incredibly talented young actors in a very intimate setting so there is no room to "phone it in." Especially in such a physically tasking performance where they go all out from the start. No knowledge of William Shakespere is necessary to...continued

Review from Jill T.

Great energy, funny performers, loved how they interacted with the audience. NOT a whole heck of a lot of Shakespearean lines, but who cares when you're laughing so much and having a great time!

Review from davis201

This irreverent play is hilarious. I told my co-worker that I would refund her money for the ticket if she doesn't enjoy it. I am going to go back again.

Review from Mary E.

This was the funniest play I've seen in years! The 3 actors (yes, only three) portrayed all of Shakespeare's characters fully. It felt like an improv session but the comedy and tradegy for the matter were so dead on you knew that a lot of work...continued

Absolutely hilarious, witty and probably the most electrifying play I've seen in recent memory--BARD none.

These three actors have more talent than should be ever possible

Review from None Indicated

A fantastic show! A wonderful, hilarious script was embellished with confidence by a great director and absolutely teriffic--and energetic--actors. If you want to have not just a few laughs but lots of them, go see "The Complete Works..." It...continued

Review from Corkie VZ

I haven't laughed this joyously in a long time. It's silly and irreverent and totally enjoyable. The ensemble is a tight-knit group who obviously were having as much fun as the audience. I highly reccommend it.

Review from Angela L.

I loved loved loved this play. I went with a group that ranged from the well versed in Shakespeare to the completely ignorant and we all had an equally good time. The cast is stellar. Three of the funniest men I've seen (and that's after living in...continued

Review from Marni DeWitt

Totally over the top, slapstick fun. Not required that you are familiar with Shakespeare's works though if you are, I think you will have an added level of enjoyment.

There was a little audience participation. Three guys manage to pull off...continued

Review from Elizabeth H.

I went with my husband, 2 young adults and one teen. We all thought it was hilarious. The acting was outstanding and the theater welcoming. It was completely full the night we were there, and it deserves to be full every performance.

Review from Karl Dunn

This is a really great three man show that makes brief stops at sublime but spends most of its time at Ridiculousville station. I went with two friends and we had a scream. Ignore the low budget staging and the intentionally shabby wigs and...continued

Review from Cheryl

This play was absolutely hilarious whether you’ve ever read a page of Shakespeare or not! Three actors, simple props, small theatre, a million and a half laughs! Definitely worth the money for the afternoon’s or evening’s entertainment.

When we arrived, we didn't know what to expect. What we were treated to was 2 hours of laughter and fun-Thanks

Review from Judith D.

Funny moments, but not enough to sustain almost two hours of performance. I saw another company perform this and we were rolling in the aisles with laughter. Too much time spent on to do or not to do a skit. The best part was Hamlet in reverse.
