Miraculously retaining its comic timing and timeless wit more than a century later, Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) was originally published as a hilarious novel in 1889. Written as a travelogue, the lively story tells of three young men -- and a devoted terrier named Montmorency (played here by ... well, not a dog) -- on a boating holiday that quickly devolves into a series of absurd misadventures. Directed by Derek Goldman, this adaptation brings to life one of the funniest novels of all time in a must-see show. Learn More

Some of the best acting I've seen at Studio--or, for that matter, in DC. Loved the in-the-round seating, being so close to the actors. They were amazing. The whole cast.
The writing is a little like Joe Orton, a little like Martin McDonaugh--not quite as good as either, but enjoyable nonetheless. Still: be prepared for a longish evening.
Quotes & Highlights
- “The language, blunt and coarse and often hilarious, pours out of the characters with the force of the blaring jukebox rock that forms a leitmotif for the dark, violent action." -<em>-Chicago Tribune</em>
Just as the Atlantic Club in London’s SoHo district is reaching its pinnacle, its headliner is kidnapped and the owner is found sawed in two behind the club. Nervous that the party behind this abduction and murder has it in for the rest of the staff, Mickey, the club’s number two man, orders the Atlantic on lock down. When Baby, the deceased owner’s flippant son, challenges Mickey’s power, Mickey banishes him from the tightly-sealed club. Things change, however, when Baby reemerges with some shocking information behind his father’s murder and Silver Johnny’s abduction.
