The scenes in the forest were wonderfully inventive, the best I have ever seen. However, the hilarious play within the play was so overdone by the main actor that I was praying for it to end. Overall, it was a great ensemble effort well worth...continued

A joyous romp with the most over-the-top, riotous, cross between William Shatner and Jim Carrey, Nick Bottom, ever. He was the highlight of the performance.

Overall, a wonderful presentation; with the best incidental music I have heard in live...continued

OMG!! Shakespeare on steroids! One of the most dynamic, immersive productions I have ever seen. Every actor played at least two roles, some three. Even when not specifically acting a part, the actors played the scenery (!), so there was really...continued

Amazing show. The actors were having as much fun as the audience. Creative, moving and FUNNY. I am going back to see it again before it heads out for the remainder of their tour.

The play was laugh out loud funny, beautifully staged and visually stunning. It was great Shakespeare. Someone who isn't into the classics could enjoy this production and finally get why people love his work so much.

I was reluctant to go to the play because it was Shakespeare. Sometimes its so difficult to understand what is being expressed but due to the actors animation in their faces and physical actions, I really enjoyed the play. I recommend going to...continued

Theatre only holds 99 so every seat is great and can be heard well. It was a very creative presentation of a very often produced comedy. I enjoyed it very much.
