The play was extremely well done--acting and directing exceptional. My husband and I knew the play fairly well; this adaptation was fresh and enthusiastic yet brought out both the class and gender issues present in the original.

This averages to four stars, because the first act was five star, and the second act was three star. The first act was fun, peppy, and the woman playing the countess had impeccable comic timing. The second act dragged just a little, but that was...continued

With all the financial and political misbehaving who doesn't miss the good old days of sexual bad behavior. Marriage of Figaro is just the ticket. Laugh and admire the gourgeous and perfect actors who are at their best.
