It's rare I go to the theatre and physically laugh. Thanks to this outstanding production I had a really enjoyable time in the theatre. Energetic, well paced, good diction, and innovative. I have seen and studied MANY of Shakespeare's plays and this left me wanting to go straight back to the box office to see it again! Shakespeare as it should be done in the 21C. The dialogue actually came to life. Yes it was metatheatrical but that's the nature of the play, infact all Renaissance theatre is steeped in metatheatre. Pure entertainment and enjoyment - just what I needed. Thank you. Jacqui.L - Jacq. L.

The Hollywood Dream is not a new idea. Shakespeare's Globe tour a year or two back had Quince and Bottom in the Directors' Chairs. This time, in a brilliantly sustained conceit, it's Robin P Goodfellow, mischievously manipulating the mortals in an affectionate look at the star-studded Sixties in tinsel town. - Michael Gray

This is the kind of production that I might expect from a student group who had just learned the meaning of the word 'metadrama'. Killed by its own concept, the production tries to shoe-horn Shakespeare into a Hollywood location with disastrous results. The end product was confused, limp and dull. Prior to seeing this production, I had believed that it would be impossible to render this play un-funny. How wrong I was. - Kathy D
