This play was originally performed in London in 1892, and on Broadway in 1893. Just like yesterday, the Victorian openings were a sell out with long runs, and rumor is that it is performed every day somewhere in the world since then.
It has also been a movie several times, and revived as a musical.
It is a classic British farce and done in 3 acts with two short intermissions. It is a piece of History.
We loved it, and so did the rest of the audience.
The show runs approximately 90 minutes, including an intermission.
This delicious comedy of disguises, love, greed, and romance, will move you to tears of laughter. Jack loves Kitty and Charley loves Amy and both are relying on Charley’s millionaire aunt to chaperone their fledgling romances. When Charley’s aunt postpones her visit, the duo convinces a schoolmate to masquerade as the dowager. Chaos ensues when the real aunt unexpectedly, arrives and destroys Jack and Charley’s best laid plans.
