We did not find the show funny. We thought the show's theme had a great deal of potential but found the score greatly lacking. The theater was gorgeous and the set was well done. The acting was quite good but the story plot was not at all amusing.

I have always enjoyed the lambs players plays, but this was awful! We walked out after 40 mins. We went to the resturant across the street and they said we were definetly not the the first patrons they have had that walked out.

Really a lot of fun. Kinda silly at times, but good hearted and some of the most inspired comedic scenes I've seen. All performers were in top form and maintained a high level of hilarity and off beat charm.

Um, I have no idea why most people gave this play such good reviews -- it was AWFUL! I could tell withing 10 minutes of it starting that I just wasn't getting 'sucked into it'. Admittedly, half the audience was laughing out loud, but I could tell...continued

Aside from the difficulty of finding a parking space it was an excellent experience. The play is one of the funniest I have ever seen and the acting is first rate.

Superb production of a very clever play! The cast, and esp the lead character, was delightful in every way! Can't go wrong with this show... The "clan" guys added a bit of unexpected menace to the play, but the lead dispatched of them,...continued

Surprisingly unfunny. The actors were great and did what they could with material that just didn't connect....and in the second half of the play, the Klan shows up. A theatrical first for us!

We didn't know anything about the play but heard about it from a friend. We thought it was hilarious and the acting (all the cast) was outstanding especially since it involved so many accents and comic gyrations from the lead actor. The theater...continued

It is a funny play. The "Foreigner" had a part that was perfect for overacting, and he overacted to the max--which is this play is appropriate. We enjoyed everything in the play until it came time for the KKK to be inserted into the plot. We...continued

We enjoyed the play. Parking is a headache down there. And I had a Red Velvet membership which supposedly gave me preferred seats, yet we were in the back row of the A section. I hardly think that was worth the extra $20 as that got me back...continued
