"Comedy ensemble the Outfit combines Elizabethan drama with dreamy fighter pilots in their reimagined Shakespearean parody of Top Gun."

"...a tongue-in-cheek meeting of The Bard and the 80’s cult classic that promises nothing but good fun."
"The first four words of this show's synopsis in the festival guide are 'Top Gun and Shakespeare,' so we're kind of already hooked."
