Great energy but a bit too frenetic for our taste. Some lines were funny but delivered so quick it was hard to absorb. Terrific group of actors and staff though made for a nice evening out!

Quotes & Highlights

“Scott OKen and Ernie Deak’s high-energy farce, first produced by the Factory Theater in 2005, works its comic chops on a number of levels … Toast of the Town is equally an homage to old-school comedy, with tips of the hat to fast-talking funnymen from the Marx Brothers to Benny Hill.” —Time Out Chicago (3 stars)
Toast of the Town is unapologetically loud and consciously over-the-top, and it works well that way. Kudos to the cast for keeping the high energy going for the entire duration of the play….You are riveted to the oddball happenings on stage and find yourself rooting for the characters, as they are all essentially good people. Go watch Toast of the Town if you enjoy laugh-a-minute humor and happy, if improbable, endings. Be prepared, however, for a lingering feeling of wishing that the theater industry in reality could be filled with this much affability and changes of heart.” —Chicago Theater Beat (3 stars)
