Commentaires : Notes: This was a hip-hop version of Shakespeare’“Comedy of Errors”, aimed at the MTV generation. A set of twins are separated at birth and put up for adoption when their father is arrested for drug-dealing, and their story is told in rhyming couplets against a background of hip-hop and rap. With a DJ and just four men - the Bomb-Itty Boys - playing all the roles, bouncing in and out of frocks and wigs to play every part, and keeping close to the original plot with much wit, slapstick and inventiveness, its infectious energy and entertainment value earned it excellent notices.
Commentaires longs: It had begun life as a New York University thesis and then became an off-Broadway hit and had transferred to London from the Edinburgh Festival
Presse : RACHEL HALLIBURTON for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Lightning humour and exhilaratingly sparky performances."

LYN GARDNER for THE GUARDIAN says, "Clever, rude, raucous fun." And goes on to say, "The evening is never a drag, is often very funny."

IAN JOHNS for THE TIMES says, "Despite the odd sly line, Andrew Goldberg's production trades on stereotypes, burly men in drag, crude slapstick and genial vulgarity. Panto has come early and it's got a hip-hop beat."

RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, "After about an hour, one's elation at the youthful high spirits and amateurish charm turns to impatience at the monotonous beat."

IAN SHUTTLEWORTH for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Fast, funny and clever phenomenon."

CHARLES SPENCER for DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Make no mistake, this hip hop Shakespeare is a blast."
