Excellent show with witty repartees and action. A funny comedy with a tragic ending (after all, you know from the title that the two main characters will die). Special mention to Jeff Asjes (Rosencrantz), Mike Johnson (Guildenstern) and Sarah...continued

The law students did and incredible job in a short amount of preparation time. Hope their studies did not suffer.

Good production with some fine moments, but the play seemed to drag sometimes.

Good production. Didn't realize that it was going to be an amateur troupe (should have read more closely). Show ran a bit long (2.5 hours with intermission), and I wish they had moved it along a little more (existentialism on this scale gets a...continued

Amazingly well done, my favorite play of all time and I'd never seen it performed live. Great work.

Brilliant performance of a superb play. Great acting. The seating was a little crowded and the theater a little over heated, so that air felt uncomfortably dry, but other than that it was a wonderful play at a reasonable price

Acting was good but play was dreadful.

Far better than your average amateur production. Some very strong performances. And the text shines.

I probably should have read that it's an existentialist tragicomedy before heading into it! It was well done, but very heady, and just not quite my style for a Thursday evening. The cast & crew did a great job though!

a real tour de force by the three main actors, eagerly cheered on by their student peers, friends and family. stage use was clever. very witty play, very fast repartee, difficult to master diction and speed but rosencrantz & guildenstern did...continued

The actress who played Player is amazing. I hope to see her in other productions in the DC area.

A very low-quality production with poor direction, a non-existent set and generally poor performances. Left at intermission.

Excellent amateur production. I liked the directors' take on the play. Many of the lines were delivered with greater impact (comedic effect, or depth of thought) than the film version of the play. The minimalist staging added to the inherently...continued

Good but not great amateur production. Female lead was a little shrill, and hard to understand.

Keep in mind that this is a law school with an under equipped theater that would embarrass most high schools. All the obvious entrances to the university are locked at night, so there's a long bit of stumbling around outside in groups until...continued

Amateurish and poorly acted except for rosencranz, golden stern, and hamlet. The player especially over acted a grating amount. Left at intermission--glad I didn't pay full price.

Atrocious acting for the most part, and the theatre was incredibly hot and stifling. The woman cast as the Player was insufferable and had an incredibly shrill voice--she shrieked to the point of being unintelligible.

Fantastic value. A very competent showing of a classic absurdest play by a student production company. Unfortunately, they are very amateur in how they run the show. There were no signs leading us, and about ten others, to the one unlocked door...continued

The actors did a great job and seemed to be having fun while doing so!
