Merge a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta with the gothic world of illustrator Edward Gorey and you get some sense of the silly, spooky atmosphere of Ruddigore. A witch's curse, a hall of talking portraits and a legion of sadistic ghosts make for a delightfully ghoulish romp. Though not as well known as The Pirates of Penzance or The Mikado, Ruddigore showcases some of Sullivan's finest melodies and Gilbert's nimblest lyrics. The lightning speed and ridiculous rhymes of "My Eyes Are Fully Open" make even "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General" seem plodding and slow-witted by comparison. Learn More

The lead actress did a great job. Quite a lot of dialogue for her to remember. I didn't really care for the opening speech. I thought the second and third acts were better than the first. They could have omitted the second intermission. They could have just darkened the stage for a little bit to make the minor scene changes. Wonderful small venue with changing artwork in the lobby that is pretty engaging.

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.
Directed by Phoebe E. Moyer
