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

Not the best thing I've ever seen. The staging was good, but the surtitles were difficult to follow, and a lot of the nuances seemed to be lost in translation. If one doesn't speak fluent Spanish, it may not be the best show to attend.
