This averages to four stars, because the first act was five star, and the second act was three star. The first act was fun, peppy, and the woman playing the countess had impeccable comic timing. The second act dragged just a little, but that was...continued

With all the financial and political misbehaving who doesn't miss the good old days of sexual bad behavior. Marriage of Figaro is just the ticket. Laugh and admire the gourgeous and perfect actors who are at their best.

This show was SO much fun. The acting was fantastic, set and costume were beautiful, and I laughed out loud several times (which is rare for me)! This is such an enjoyable event, but don't bring small kids- there's way too much silly innuendo!
