Congratulations to the theatre for performing Shakespeare plays. However, this performance was less than satisfactory. In the first half of the play both Anthony and Cleopatra were portrayed as total caricatures. The overall acustics were...continued

Lovely new venue, but the performance itself was not up to the quality of past productions. Antony either yelled or whispered. Cleopatra was an uninteresting fishwife despite having the best lines. Usually I'm a sucker for Shakespearean anything -...continued

The first ever (since its opening) A Noise Within production that was a disappointment. Although it was well-acted and production was very good, the actors were difficult to understand. We both missed most of the dialogue.
The new theater is...continued

The new theater is beautiful! I loved the set design. Very cool use of space...actors who repel from the catwalk for a fight sequence! It makes me happy that A Noise Within continues to bring classics to the stage and finds cool ways to make a...continued

Anthony & Enobarbus. The show looks swell, has...continued

The play was long - about 3 hours. Actors were only okay, costumes were bad; but I was amazed that they could remember all their lines for the difficutly of the language. I nodded off twice even though I was in the second row. (I have never...continued
