Bright and colorful and enthusiastically played but not particularly funny or engaging. Like clown college grad students trying to go legit.

Thank you GoldStar for flagging this performance! This play was hilarious! The entire audience was laughing out loud, clapping along and almost joining into fun of this excellent small stage performance of Moliere's matchmaking farce. Each of...continued

High energy, great performances, enjoyable romp. The theatre space has the advantage of being small, meaning even the worst seats still afford a good view, but the disadvantage of being not particularly comfortable or attractive.

It was a very silly play. Some things didn't make sense at all (Jewish wedding song in a non Jew wedding celebration), but half of the audience seemed to love it. I wouldn't pay a full price for it.

Fascinating to see the influence of one of the authors who adapted this Moliere play. Not going to spoil it, but it was a very fun time.

Excellent acting in a picaresque comedy. I loved Octave's gnarly SoCal accent as well as the clever nods to other languages throughout the play. I found myself smiling or laughing most of the time. I enjoyed the colorful set and farcical costumes...continued

Tickets available without a problem. No such thing as a bad seat, as it's a small place. Fun and silly show.

I rarely dislike plays, but really thought this was bad. Should have read up on it more ahead of time.

Had seen the original production in NY years ago. While I have enjoyed many productions at Source/Constellation, this one fell flat.

A wonderful cast, enthusiasm beyond belief.
You might advertise where parking is available in the neighborhood plus Metro information - we come in from Alexandria.

I was honestly expecting more since I've been to other Constellation Theater productions- Zorro and Gilgamesh- and thoroughly enjoyed them. However, this is a silly romp without much substance. The seats are all great. Parking was ridiculously...continued

Excellent all the way around. Extraordinary acting and production values. Small venue made for great seats for everyone. I highly recommend this production. A great Valentine's Day gift!

Great night out with a friend, the show had us laughing nonstop! The theater is very small but the set and show was great. Don't arrive late, you have to walk onto the set to get to your seat.
