We had a fun time at this show. The acting was good, and the setting beautiful. They made a very complex play understandable.

On the whole, I found the performance to be uneven. It definitely was enjoyable to be exposed to a Shakespearean work I hadn't seen before, and I was impressed by the efforts to incorporate science fiction references into the costumes, sets, and...continued

Shakespeare in Outer Space--where no performing troupe has gone before. I did not know Shakespeare could be this funny. The multiple kingdoms of Shakespeare's play are transported to various Science Fiction movie worlds including a kingdom of Star...continued

Great acting, incredible venue under the redwoods, and OUT OF THIS WORLD costumes!! Setting Pericles in sci-fi land is a brilliant idea. I went with a friend who has avoided Shakespeare for decades but who immediately recognized the sci-fi...continued

This was one of the better re-interpretive stagings of Shakespeare that I have seen in my life. Dubious even unto the moment we sat down, I was immediately pulled in to the director's concept and my cynicism was unfounded.
Another amazing show...continued

Pros: good enthusiastic cast, great costumes, nice set. Great jokes on your favorite sci-fi shows.
Cons: Very poorly written story. Synopsis alone in the program was confusing, but watching without reading it meant not understanding what was...continued

This is absolutely the most fun and creative Shakespeare play I have ever seen. The acting was great, as were the costumes, the set, and staging.

If you're not a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Firefox, etc, you likely won't get most...continued

Had a blast - the cast did a terrific job bringing in a bit of camp to make this play very approachable. Discovered this troupe this summer and I'm now sold as a regular fan. The setting is terrific, despite living here for many years, I never...continued

This was a very clever and engaging version of Pericles. It was packed with sci-fi jokes and sight gags, and was a delight to watch, from the opening warm-up karaoke to the final triumph.

Loved the creative adaptation. The costumes and stage sets were a combination of Star Trek and Star Wars. Actors were fabulously funny.

Held at Sanborn Park this is a great outdoor theater experience. I would suggest arriving early, the day I went there was a wedding and parking was limited. Sit in the middle or the right side of the seats for the best view. This was well done...continued

It really is Shakespeare; with Star Wars/Star Trek/Flash Gordon overtones that don't detract from the play, but enhance it for the modern audience. Very well done. Finding the event venue can be a challenge if you have not been there before - so...continued

This was a wonderful event in a beautiful location. Although not the most professional event I've ever attended, it was genuinely funny and interesting and well done, and there were some wonderful actors. However, the location is breathtaking,...continued
