Re: “Romance with Impact

Thanks for this review. When I read the promo fir this production, I sensed it would be as you described . . . almost like giving Shakespeare's text the finger. There are certainly many ways to direct this play, but treating the text as an obstacle or being sarcastic with it doesn't work. If only more theatre directors around here would make the play more important than their egotistic need to "make a statement" or whatever at the expense of the play - or trying so hard to "sell" the play with a flashy angle that all the nuance and color that Shakespeare gave us gets lost and wasted.
