The show was terrible. Shakespere must be turning over in his grave. We kept waiting for it to get better but it got worse so we left at the intermission.

This show is not my favorite art form. It is LOUD and RAUCOUS, or seemed so to me. And, the performance has very little to do with Shakespere. In fact, I HATED it so much I had to leave the performance area and wait for the intermission in the...continued

If you like your plays to be nothing but stream-of-consciousness, run-on, back to back, unending, pins-in the eyes_ 'why is God so mad at me to torture me so?’ nonsensical lines...then this is your play. If you, in a twisted, dysfunctional way,...continued

Good music, funny cast; loaded with sexual innuendos... a little is funny, but over the top is a put-off. Won't go back.

Just wonderful! An inspired mash-up of Shakespeare and slapstick.

It was incredible fun. Actually made Shakespeare understandable, and funny to boot.
We had a party of 8 and everyone had a great time.

Go, go, go!!! You will laugh from beginning to end. Even if you're not a fan of Shakespeare, and even if you don't like the Bee Gees, just GO. You will be in hysterics the whole time. They have made a Troubies fan out of me for life.

Awesome, Funny, Innovative, Entertaining and enjoyed the total experience of melting classic with the Bee-Gee's, as I love both. As always, love Goldstar events.

NOTE: Because the play used a lot of the main theater floor, we were not able to...continued

I have never seen a Troubie show that didn't crack me up! Great show ideas, hysterical physical comedy, sly jokes, and slightly (sometimes a little more) raunchy attitudes make for a night to remember. If you can handle some craziness, don't miss...continued

If you think the classics are too high-brow for you, the Troubies may be just what you're looking for. Mashing up Shakespeare with the Bee Gees makes it all very approachable and lots of fun. The actors are all skillful comedians and the band...continued

We've seen lots of the troubie shows over the years, but this has to be one of the best !! They pulled out all the stops & kept us rolling in the aisles for the entire show. They omitted the 'You're So Vain' portion, but that missing piece was...continued

The show was a new experience for us and we enjoyed it tremendously. It was funny, entertaining and audience interaction was great. The performers were all excellent singers, dancers and comedians. We wil definitely seek out another "troubie"...continued

So much fun. If you like Saturday Night Fever era music and mix in Shakespeare you will enjoy this immensely. I really like this venue. Usually plenty of room available.

This was my first "Troubie" experience & I would highly recommend the show. Definitely not "G" rated stuff, so probably not best for families. Now I'm sad that I missed "Fleetwood Macbeth" last year + am looking forward to next year's production!

This is one of THE funniest shows I have ever seen. I do not understand Shakespear but what was really nice was that you didn't have to. I would ABSOLUTELY go again
