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

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.
