The main character in the play is the most talented actress we have seen. Full of life and personality. She single-handedly captures the entire audience for 2 hours with her geat accent and sheer energy and acting skill. A true and great artist.

Fun evening. Sylvia Burboeck as Lettice Douffet maintains the high energy required to convey this quirky character. I saw Maggie Smith play the part on Broadway and Silvia's portrayal holds up well by comparison. There's a subtle difference...continued

Great show, funny and the acting was very good especially the lead. The Village theater seems to always have quality entertainment at a reasonable price.
