I was both engaged and confused, and came away with an appreciation of the acting rather than the script, which has loaded too many gender-focused debates and fanciful "fake history" into one stew. The final scene seemed to add its own judgment...continued

The entire evening was a mesmerizing experience. The play, and the performances, kept me engaged from beginning to end. My guest and I had a fantastic time.

Very well-acted and interesting play about Sarah Bernhardt's decision to play Hamlet. Unfortunately, though, it gets pretty muddled at the end, leaving the viewer to wonder just what happened.

As always The Goodman Theatre produces some of the best theatre in Chicago! The actors were superb and the play itself was magnificent.

It was okay. The performances were very good. Some of the set pieces were confusing. The script itself was disappointing.

Entertaining in many spots, but could have definitely been edited for excessive wordiness by 15-20 minutes. Also, it's very possible to present a play about a strong woman without lapsing into the PC preachiness that's all the rage...continued

The play started off on a very high note with plenty of laughs. It waned toward the end before intermission. After intermission, it again engaged the audience, but fell flat. Never did understand the role of her son. That could have been left...continued
