Following up on some recent threads, here's a question. A friend, maybe a coworker, somebody you know casually but not well, asks your opinion on a Shakespeare performance that is in town. Specifically they ask, "Is it worth going?"
What do you say? Do you ever give Shakespeare a bad as in "Don't go" review?
While As You Like It is in town, several coworkers have asked for my review. I find myself pained to give an actual go-or-dont-go answer to the question, because the idea of saying "No, don't go to Shakespeare" is something that can't really come out of my mouth. I realize that it's not for everybody, sure. But the idea that somebody would choose to not see it at all, based on my opinion, is not really cool with me. Some exposure to Shakespeare, even if you don't like it, is better than none.
