A long but absorbing adaptation of the classic Dorothy Sayers mystery, well directed and acted. The largely female cast (the action takes place at a women's college at Oxford in the 1930s) has better English accents than I've heard on the town's...continued

I went to see "Chaps" at Taproot and enjoyed it so much I talked my husband into joining me to see "Gaudy Night". We are both great fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' mysteries and this was a delightful interpretation. (Read the books, though, for a...continued

This is a fine production with good acting. However, I didn't much like the play, which seemed rather old fashioned with a pretty obvious plot. It's also very hard to watch a play from the extreme side seats of the balcony. I kept getting a crick...continued

The actors were first rate. This is a small theater and I thought our seats were going to be terrible, but even though we were on the side and farthest back seat, we had great seats. I loved the setting, costumes, etc. The second half of the...continued

Excellent job. The sets were very minimal but all that was needed. The acting was quite good. The two main characters were very, very good and completely believable. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. One note, if sitting in the balcony - make...continued

Lord Peter and Harriet were wonderfully cast. They were true to the characters in the book.
