Barely funny and very, very anti-gay. Nero is played as a lisping queen and the word fa___et is uesed. Don't bother.

I agree with the other reviewers. Overall the performances were okay - and did appreciate the staging - but in the end it's just a weak script.

This was terrible. It is not even near the quality one expects from Arena Stage. Enormously disappointing.

Quotes & Highlights

“Amy Freed gives zaniness a good name … a silly-savvy lark … a provocative bowl of goofy … The delightfully snide Danny Scheie purrs, simpers, fumes and camps it up grandly.” -–_Washington Post _
“If you love broad comedy, there’s a lot of it in You, Nero. Amy Freed captures all of that weird excess and contradiction in her comedy _You, Nero … matched perfectly  by Scheie’s giddy characterization.” -–"Washington Examiner _":http://washingtonexaminer.com/entertainment/theater/2011/12/fiddling-history/1990716
