How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
There were enough "good" actors to make the show watchable, but only until intermission when we promptly left. By then the venue was unbearably hot (you are sharing the stage lights with the actors). The actors were tedious and thought a lot of themselves yet some seemed to have NO IDEA what it was they were saying, let alone the tone Shakespeare intended and grotesquely over-acted what should have been subtle (and in a venue this small and intimate could have been played so well). Some characters panned and played to the audience, even interacting at times and some did not, leaving you to ponder whether you were part of the play or not.
