The bare-bones staging was very witty...well worth the trip.

As You Like It
Leave it to Shakespeare, in the loving and crafty hands of a director like Mr. Cicchino, to bring to glorious life the human tapestry in all its poetic good cheer.
The show is well-paced and the acting sharp, with cleanly delivered lines, dynamic character development and body language that hammers home Shakespeare’s wit and brings to life his bawdier verses.

The smart, quick cutting of this tragedy is an excellent example of Ancient Greek drama. Cicchino knew what he wanted and put it on stage. If you are looking to see what the ancient Greeks would have seen, it is absolutely worth a trip to see this lovely production.
Gregory Cicchino's direction keeps the show going, steering the superb cast into many funny moments throughout.
Director Greg Cicchino does a lot to activate Overheard, and succeeds.
