Presented with simplicity and sincerity, this pretty comedy about a boy and girl in love is a welcome change from other heavier renderings of Shakespeare. Tinkling on the edge of farce, but restrained by the wit and beauty of its language, this treatment preserves the richness and catches the light-hearted, whimsical spirit of romance.
