Notes

Stills
"Even the costumes are unmoored ,,, It’s a beautiful universe: from extravagant medieval furs to 1820s cutaway coats and New Look Dior skirts, it’s a time traveler’s delight from costumer Loren Shaw". Jill Kyle-Keith, DC Theatre Scene (May 28 2016).
Textual information
Dramaturg: Drew Lichtenberg
Reviews
"About 30 to 40 percent of the show is cut out, shoved aside by dance numbers and no fewer than three subplots artificially introduced into Shakespeare’s already crowded story". Kate Harvard, Washington Free Beacon (May 28 2016).
