The setting was great. But the event was served with a little to much Ham. You should tell people to bring a flash light as it was a very dark walk back to the parking lot.

I saw two performances of Shady Shakespeare. They aren't quite as good as Free Shakespeare in the Park. This particular performance was not quite what I was expecting. Some of the jokes were funny, but overall all of us were a little...continued

It was so great, I attended two nights in a row: first night with hubby, and second night with friend for her birthday. We all loved it so much! From the fun folks manning the will-call tent, to the fun folks manning the concession tents, to the...continued

SO great. It's well written and the actors are top notch. The venue doesn't hurt as well--you're nestled in the midst of Sanborn Park in the trees and under the stars in Saratoga. Simply lovely. It seemed like everybody brought their own dinner. I...continued

Very campy, but it did in fact remind me of long-forgotten plays, and of a couple I've never read. I was skeptical that 3 performers could pull this off, but they did quite well. Lots of audience interaction. Not for the snooty bard-lover, but...continued

Actors were enthusiastic, but nor credible. I've seen higher quality versions of this production elsewhere. The setting was fantastic, but that was the only redeeming feature.

Humor runneth over. Hamlet in reverse was outrageous. You thank.

The play was hilarious. The performers did great jobs. Anaseini was a unique Hamlet. There was some PG-13 to R rated humor (and I don't mean the stuff the Bard himself put in) but overall the children we took had a wonderful time. The setting was...continued

Very entertaining, the players (the whole show is done by just 3 actors!) are very energetic and really engage the audience. I went with my sister and my 13 yr. old niece and we not only laughed throughout much of the performance but even...continued

If you like irreverent, bawdy, and hilarious send-ups of the things people usually take very seriously, performed by people who are obviously lovin' it...(and you have any familiarity with Shakespeare's plays)...you're gonna' love it, too!

The evening was very enjoyable.after reserving our seats (which was seemless) we had a lovely picnic at a near-by table. The show was creative and extremely funny. The only negative was the folding seats were uncomfortable.

A fast-paced, creative, fun time in a beautiful forest setting with plenty of audience participation/interaction. Cast and crew put on a professional level show in an informal, outdoor setting. Congratulations to a company of players and...continued

For a small production, in an intimate setting the actors were really good, and it was a lot of fun.

I usually like the plays from Shady Shakespeare. This one was a comedy of condensed versions of all of Shakespeare's plays. It had a lot of modern time references that were funny. I like about the first 20 minutes of the play, but the humor got...continued
