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

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

I found it sophomoric - not at all witty. Other people were laughing, though.

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.

It was a great evening. The Ruskin Theater is well worth supporting.

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

what a fun show! I was skeptical at first as the theatre was tiny and the cast was a total of 3 men....but WOW did they make my night! Both my friend and I were laughing hysterically. Once you embrace the "cheese", you are in for a good time.

A fun event. They really pulled the audience into the act and they were energetic and very funny.

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

it was a hilarious evening; the players are so very talented,
and we really enjoyed their performance. It was a first time
visit to the Ruskin Theatre Group, and we will attend other
events in the future there.

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
