Looked forward to this production as we had recently enjoyed One Man Two Guvnors in London and read that it was based on this play. The London version was a laugh riot, and although quite different, this play was well executed with a strong cast and some playful moments that kept the audience well entertained.
Two low points though - one was the role of Beatrice, one of the main characters. She seemed to rush through her lines with little emotion, seemingly just to get the words out. Unfortunately, her performance really stood out because the rest of the cast was quite good.
The other complaint, and the main reason for the low rating, was the role of the female Asian character. Talk about racial stereotypes. Here we have a Japanese woman, speaking in accented English and walking with little steps as if her feet were bound,in the middle of Italy, totally out of context. Did they create this role just for the Asian cast member? Let's be thankful they didn't have any other races or ethnicities represented in their cast. I could just imagine how much more damage they'd have done.
