Young Adult Lit/Crit

I can’t wait to hear from the people who go to see it with the high schoolers. We should compare experiences. I wish I had gone to see it with the kids from Corcoran, but I didn’t think to ask soon enough.

There are so many teaching opportunities that come along with it. The male actors act in all of the female parts, just like in Shakespeare’s time! It was so funny! The jokes about rap and the music was awesome, but I think some of the references might be lost on older audience members who don’t follow pop culture. There were also some great references to shakespeare, though which might have been lost on the younger crowd. But for the most part, there was something for everyone.

The actors were incredible. There was no intermission and I can’t believe they had the stamina for such a high-energy two-hour performance. Truly admirable talent.

Overall, an amazing experience. I left saying that I might go see it again a few more times. My boyfriend and I laughed through the whole two hours. DON’T MISS THIS EXPERIENCE!!!




  1. Allison, thanks for your encouraging classmates to go–you are echoing my very experience/words!! Glad you saw it. KES
