Somehow, I doubt that the Bard would recognize this one!
28 August 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Picture a production of Romeo and Juliet with none of Shakespeare's dialogue and sung (badly) and you can get a slight idea what goes on here. The lyrics that Olive sings to Bluto are worth the price of admission alone! A Shakespearian without a sense of humor will be gnawing the baseboards, but I like this one, personally. Well worth watching. Recommended.
