This world premiere comedy leaves the nutcrackers, misers and elves behind, and instead mashes Twelfth Night, Richard III and A Christmas Carol with historical inaccuracies and slanderous fabrications. In the spirit of Black Adder and Shakespeare in Love, Holiday of Errors (or Much Ado About Stockings) is an irreverent sendup that starts with Will Shakespeare and his trusty leading man, Dickie Burbage, on Christmas Eve 1593. The great Theatre is facing imminent closure as the plague rages through London. Find out what happens to Will and Dickie when they receive an urgent invitation from Queen Elizabeth to perform at Whitehall Palace. Learn More

This show has better production values than I expected (costumes, sets, etc.) and the acting was good to very good (except for the actor who played the magician). Unfortunately, the actors had been directed to deliver their lines as though they were addressing the last row of a 1,000-seat theater rather than the intimate space in which the play was performed. I believe the experience would have been more engaging if lines had been delivered so as to draw me into the action rather than to want to be away from it.
This show is recommended for those age 10 and older.
The show's running time is two hours and 30 minutes.
