    " This play has genuinely funnier moments than have occurred in either of its predecessors (Comedy of Errors, Shrew), stemming from the fact that for the first time the audience gets to be in one one of the character's jokes on another (when the Duke of Milan messes with Valentine when he knows Valentine is planning to steal away his daughter.) Plus, Launce's speeches are actually truly funny (if antisemetic, sigh.) Also, Mark and I thought that in Proteus we see the idea of love being far more important than the reality: it's why he won't kiss Julia goodbye, and why we think he switches the object of his affection to Silvia, who is more unattainable and therefore can be wooed tragically. Yes, the bit with the pirates couldn't be sillier (when we did this show, they were women, which made the oddly flirtatious language make more sense), and the ending totally falls apart, but we're seeing Shakespeare's sense of comedy improve markedly. "

    " Classic Shakespeare. Not my favorite but even a bad one is better than most peoples best. True love, truthy love, and betrayal with the customary woman dressed as a man (which at that time meant a male actor dressed as a woman dressed as a man??!) "

    " This is definitely not Shakespeare's finest, but it's still rather entertaining. "

    " Definitely my least favorite Shakespeare play. Tidy ending is way too easy and a little reminiscent of Hollywood (I say that pejoratively). I am looking forward to a tragedy after three comedies in a row. I think next up is Titus Andronicus (yay!). "
