Excellent production, as is always the case with this fine fine company.

The first half was entertaining but the second half became monotonous and boring. The ending was terrible.

Sorry I have seen a much better play at this same theater before and yesterday left feeling disappointed.

A lovely, fun evening at the theater. Well-written, well-acted (with believable English accents), wonderful set, lighting, costumes, etc. I recommend it.

It was disappointing. Fair efforts by the cast, a few of them were struggling with their "British" accent. They should have changed the setting to somewhere closer to... continued

Cute/enjoyable play what I could see of it, mostly heads as stage furniture blocked most of my view. My petite lady did not fair much better. HORRIBLE seats, first row far left.
