Just plain fun! You don't have to be an Alfred Hitchcock aficionado to understand or appreciate the show, but if you are familiar with his oeuvre you will enjoy the numerous allusions to his other works. Be prepared to laugh (and occasionally...continued

The acting was very good. Some seemed a bit exaggerated. This was a very good humorous adaptation of the Hitchcock thriller. The 4 actors moved seamlessly among their many roles.

Wonderful show . We had center seats five rows from the front. Great view and missed the fog on stage. Only four outstanding performers gave us lots of laughs. Well worth the time to see. Easy parking across the street and lots of places to eat.

What an enjoyable evening we had! There are only 4 actors playing all the different parts & they did an excellent job. I especially enjoyed the "not take it all too seriously" story line & the different references to various Alfred Hitchcock...continued

For anyone who even likes Alfred Hitchcock movies...and has a sense
of humor and appreciates excellent actors...you can't go wrong. My
husband and I, and our son, all loved it. Just the best!

Classic farce style play with a lots of physical humor. You don't have to review the movie but it could help. The over-the -top acting is a real hoot and the Hitchcock references are sublime! With a play within a play format you won't need to get...continued

Great, fun, silly, funny, clever, well done. We had a great time and highly recommend if you're in the mood for exaggerated Hitchcock. We were, and glad we went.

Very clever but by the middle of the second act the joke was wearing thin. A piece of fluff that was enjoyable and harmless.

We purchased tickets for this event based on the glowing reviews previously posted. However, I felt this play had an amateurish feel to it. I understand it is meant to be slapstick-type comedy, but it didn't quite hit the mark. I don't think we...

It was a crazy romp from beginning to end. The four actors are extremely talented and they immersed themselves into the roles totally. Very funny and definitely worth a night out.

It was a laugh out loud experience. The actors changed clothes in an instant. They were all wonderful and very athletic to my surprise.
