Quotes & Highlights
“Smartly choreographed anarchy, combining old gags and new … For cheerful, nimble, bawdy silliness, this dish of meringue is hard to resist.” —Seattle Times
“A fun night for everyone … Bayes’ take on Molière’s carnivalesque satire of the medical profession is a low-stakes fusion of commedia dell’arte and vaudeville—dry-rubbed with lewdness, scatology, pop music, and political incorrectness.”—Seattle Weekly
“Immensely entertaining … Just what the doctor ordered …This show is bright, breezy and thoroughly ridiculous in spite of itself. Epp and Bayes work magic …The cast works like an overwound clock, ticking off comic bits, schtick and slap-schtick like crazy. (The wordplay is inspired. I especially like ‘mamormous bababazoonage.’) The bits get so stacked up that at one hysterical point, Sganarelle shouts out, ‘When is this play going to start?’ But as long as the laughs come as they do, no one really cares.” —Hartford Courant
_ _ “Doctor is a fast-paced hoot …The show is a dizzyingly giddy experience marked by precisely executed comic business … It is relentless in its barrage of physical gags, wordplay, pop culture references and more. The production is a full-out assault on the funny bone.” —New Haven Register
“Bawdy and hilarious … It’s silly, clever, fast paced and the best time I’ve had in a theater in quite some time.” —Broadway World
“If you can imagine Pee Wee Herman and The Music Man sharing the stage with Monty Python’s Flying Circus_, you get the idea … As for Moliére, he would laugh in spite of himself.” —_New York Times _ _
