Jonson's very funny updated plague-era farce

See it if You enjoy classical plays, even updated, farce, superb acting, sets, costumes, blocking, and ribald fun. Prudes need not apply.

Don’t see it if only modern plays interest you. Frankly offers a great route back into the theater after 1 1/2 yrs of dark stages. Welcome back.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Great staging

See it if you like comedy with a that cast plays multiple parts in a non-stop romp of besting. Excellent set with appropriate Red Bull updating.

Don’t see it if you do not like silly theater - here some of the acting and the dialogue border on inappropriate today, but this is a 17th Century play!

Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Great acting

See it if The staging is excellent. The costumes are gorgeous. The story is humor-laden. The acting is top-notch.

Don’t see it if actors playing multiple roles confuse you; not always easy to understand.
