You have GOT to be kidding me with this review. The show made zero sense--grabbing some of the least beautiful chunks of the original Shakespeare, adding songs that were largely irrelevant and barely, if ever advanced the plot or even commented on it very originally, and then thrown together in a production with so many bells and whistles that every single idea was robbed of its meaning, coming along in a cavalcade of noise and nonsense. It felt like no idea was passed on and every decision was arrived at with a simple, "Why not?" Someone in a Cats costume? why not? A full marching band? Why not? Sequined hot pants? Why not? But in the rush to thrill with SO MUCH TO LOOK AT, the director lost sight of trying to do things like tell a story or develop characters. The absurdly talented cast got screwed by the metric ton of bullshit thrown at them. One of the worst things I've seen this year by a mile.
