    Shakespearean Mood Swings in Progress

    Ben Brantley

    August 12, 2013: The point appears to be that love makes fools of everyone, which is also the point — or a point — of the Shakespeare play that inspired this woozy frolic. But comedy is funniest, and truest, when people make fools of themselves in ways peculiar to their characters. In this production, there is seldom a real connection between the singers and their songs. It’s as if the musical numbers, which cover a gamut of pastiche styles, had been assigned at random from a mixtape playlist.
