The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

I realize it was described as a farce, but it was still over the top. We were so disappointed that we left at the intermission.

This play has some crazy characters that if acted well would have been much better. Not sure if it was the script, the acting and/or the directing but this was not up to par. It also does not need an intermission. Hopefully, they will cut the...continued

Description

Considered by many to be one of the funniest plays ever written, Time magazine says it gives the most precious gift of all, guaranteed laughter.

The farcical comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, two Manhattanites who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests the patient place a personal ad.

About the Ticket Supplier: Jean Shelton Foundation

The Shelton Theater (Jean Shelton Foundation), founded in 1993 by Matt Shelton, is an extension of the (Jean) Shelton Studios founded in 1961. The theater hosts live performances of musicals, narrative plays, improv, poetry, solo performances, and concerts. Film screenings and contemporary fine art are exhibited as well. We provide artists with the creative respect they need and a venue within which to observe their works. There are two intimate venues of 74 and 60 seats. Literally thousands of performing artists have created works here and the energy of those creations gives the theaters an atmosphere of truth and power. Many have revealed the aches of their heart and the strength of their imagination on these stages.
