"The Stage review (4 stars): a "fringe institution," "Shakespeare For Breakfast is now in its 25th year and it's obviously doing something right. The formula has remained pretty unchanged over the years and sell-out performances through much of this run are a credit to fearless adaptation... the spirit of the fringe and the spirit of Shakespeare couldn't be more compatible."
EdFestMag review (4 stars): "This time, A Midsummer Night’s Dream gets the treatment, in a cosmic mash-up with Star Wars and reality TV, filtered through social media and liberally sprinkled with pop-culture references."
The List review (4 stars): "Social media references become a bit too repetitive, but the writing remains clever and engaging throughout. Ultimately the strength of Shakespeare for Breakfast lies in the actors' energetic delivery and the writing's comedic tone. It succeeds in being an irreverent and consistently entertaining show."
