If u read my reviews, u kno i like to have fun. And this is fun. ok? and some of the moments are hilarous if u ask me. even so i left with an empty feeling. . two reasons. 1, the actors in are not clear with their language. Its hard to understand their lines when delivered all mubbled jumbled el dumbo style. 2. the actors dont appar to get the humour of the material. like, omg! the best jokes and funny moments are improved and more pysical in nature. Where is the parody? what about the shakespere? why not focus on the humor in ths script? its not just slapstick!!! ok, this is a tough show to perform, and they tried their best. but only directors with shakespare background and actors with shakespere experience should try this. othrwise it falls flat. like this. thud!

Are you kidding me!? by TheaterGuy
I thought the show was excellent and well done...I think most of the real humor in the show might have flown over a younger audiences head. The actors were all solid and always seemed to be having a lot of fun, which made me as a spectator want to have fun with them. It really was a great night of theater.

It might be interesting to add that two of the actors in the production and the director all have extensive Shakespeare experience....and I am still searching text books for the technical term "el dumbo style".
Funny, but they try a littel hard. 3.6 on the scale!

True, I saw this production in London. But the thing about great slapstick and improv is the appearance not trying. I think this show was well done, but things kept feeling forced at times. It ws a great ensemble, with no particular stand outs-and that is a good thing. I do recommend, especially for Shakespeare or Monty Python Fans. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
