    Shakespeare creeps me out - ever read his Rape of Lucrece? But this is FABULOUS! Wow - what a great idea and a beautiful script! Let it be produced often and everywhere!

    The concept of adapting a sonnet has paid off in spades and Sonnet 116 will never be the same. Utterly fantastic!

    This is so provocative and wonderfully uncomfortable on several levels. On the surface it appears to be the lovelorn youth in the midst of his own romantic conquest. On a deeper read, it strikes a blow to one of the most famous love sonnets of all time. It doesn't fall back on cliches of toxic masculinity, but instead a misguided sincerity that, as Accuardi so skillfully demonstrates, is not simply accepted, but celebrate in classic literature. The result is jarring: A predator who thinks he is a romantic hero. I will not look at Sonnet 116 the same way again.

    Is the guy a creep or admirable for not giving up on the woman? Is the woman foolish or right for not wanting the guy? I enjoyed being conflicted, torn between two people, agreeing and disagreeing with a character's position. The playwright did a fine job presenting something complicated about a lot of relationships: there's a bit of love and a bit of hate, desire and disgust.
