NoHoArtsDistrict - Highly Recommended

"...The players are perfection, as the Porters players always, always are. Lovely Romeo and precious Juliet. The fights are expertly done, the anger visceral, the characters proud and brooding and vain. There are a couple of gender flips, which is barely noticeable honestly, but add hugely to the play in subtle and real ways. It all works splendidly. No flash, no fluster, all commitment and honesty and heart."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Playwright/director Matt Ritchey finds a steadily paced 60 minutes of clever stupidity and never pushes the action or tempo to extremes. (One caveat: He trusts that the audience will catch the many inside theatre jokes - which is great for the theatre geeks, but significantly less amusing for those with little knowledge of the Bard.)"

Theatre Notes - Highly Recommended

"...This mash up is patently outrageous and undeniably, groanably funny, with a cast that is having the time of their life and the audience gets sucked in like a doomed ship in a whirlpool. Don't think, just enjoy the fun."
