Thought the staging was good, but too much slapstick for our tastes. The AC was so cold that we had to leave at intermission. Other patrons did the same.

Actors did a fine job.....4playing multiple rolls!

First act seemed to move faster than the second which dragged a bit. Stage sets, costumes were done well. Lots of energy. Music was generated electronically and set the mood without live...continued

I found this performance brilliantly creative and as funny a show as I've seen in years. I have already sent others to see it!

I did not enjoy this particular play, although the actors did a great job and put all their effort into the production. I just thought it was a bit too slap stick and trite. This was just not for me, so I left at intermission.

The play was well-performed, but just not very funny. Maybe I'm just too jaded for this type of slapstick humor. But I've seen all these jokes before, and they just went on and on. I took a chance on this show, having never seen either the play or...continued

The staging for this play is amazing. Through clever costuming, four actors become a hundred different characters and the stage becomes a train, a windy moor, and much more. A great, fun production!

The performers were brilliant. Although the play was not at all what we expected, we enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm recommending it to anyone who will listen!

Witty storyline, well executed, great comedic twist on a Hitchcock story. The acting is so good that you forget there are only four actors playing multiple rolls. Very entertaining!!

One of the most unique and well done plays I've ever seen. Have already recommended it to my friends. Don't think there was 5 minutes that went by that we weren't laughing. 4 actors playing 140 different parts.....they did this flawlessly....continued

Hilarious slapstick elements and dialogue. Not at all like Hitchcock's movie.

This play is absolutely fantastic! It's one of the most memorable plays we've ever seen. It's extremely clever in the use of props, and the actors are superb in all their multiple roles. Don't miss it!

Excellent Show, very funny, suspenseful and I thought the sound effects and the acting of the 4 people who played quite a few different roles each were outstanding ! Highly recommend to see this show.

A fun show! Very creative. Many laughs. You may want to read up on it before seeing it. Some people were confused about the plot and had a hard time following it, but enjoyed it nonetheless. I highly recommend this show.
