We have been big fans of Shakespeare in the Park for 4 years. This was not our favorite. The songs were not the best and seemed out of place. The singing was probably good but the acoustics were so bad for this - it sounded not great. I cringed a few times with the “harmonies”. If you miss this year - don’t feel bad.

SF shakes - it was an interesting experiment - please don’t do it again.

I feel the opposite; I really enjoyed the music they wrote for this production. It’s true that there are occasional microphone issues and one or two performances are a little flat, but for a free Shakespeare play in the park, I’d say this is well worth seeing.

This play was a big hit with our family. The music really helps explain the plot to younger (and older) audiences. I thought it was terrifically integrated into the play.
