Mr. Cutler's other shows might be great, but this one was dull and tedious.

Though the question of Shakespearian authorship can be an interesting "What if?" scenario, this show delivers only a tired caricature of orthodox education, some empty questions, and a weak argument from authority.

I can appreciate that Mr. Cutler finds the subject matter appealing, but his lack of serious, credible research impairs his ability to deliver an informative show, which means, since it is neither entertaining, that there is very little to see here.

A very funny long over-due assault on popous professors. Particularly Shakespeare profs.  Laughed a lot.  And most of the audience was laughing with me.  Except maybe the teachers in the audience.  Doubt they were laughing.

I was there opening night and there hasn't yet been another show, so we saw the same show. I was laughing and so was the crowd. Maybe the show struck a nerve with you BH? 

Keep it up Keir it's a great show and an important one !

GO see it everyone, and as he says in the show, ''think for yourselves!''

It has been my experience that Fringe audiences are quite forgiving.

In the performance I saw, Cutler shot his bolt at the Mulberry tree bit, and the show dragged from then on.

More revision and more rehearsal is necessary for this to reach the category of "performance".

Prospective audience members may judge for themselves.
