Oh, dear. I was neither impressed nor enchanted. Has great production values and stagecraft, but no heart.

This was a clever staging on The Winter's Tale with some top-notch actors playing multiple parts. It wasn't a traditional setting, nor were the performances "traditional", but it was very good.
