If you liked the BBC production shown on PBS you will love this play. The play by itself is worthwhile seeing. It was a fun evening with some superb acting.

If you listen to the LA Times review, you'll regret it. Run to see this play. This was a very funny farce with excellent cast and amazing dialog. The political aspects... continued

A very good translation/update of the classic British TV series. All the actors were top notch. Almost all the fireworks were verbal, which is the hallmark of much... continued

Very funny political farce. Long for a comedy but it moves really fast and I wasn't aware of the length during the performance. All around great cast with stand out... continued

I enjoyed the first act and thought the second act was a little over the top silly for me. Not the type of show I enjoy.

Make sure to bone up on The Economist before attending; Anglophobes will not appreciate this show. Exceptionally academic and intelligent, in the sense of Shaw's later... continued

Hilarious and witty. Excellent performances all around. The plot gets a bit muddled at times, but it quickly recovers. Wonderful for political junkies.

Very good and quite funny, though not as sharp of wit as I was expecting for a British comedy. Also, some of the actors sounded more American than English. If you're... continued
