The pluses: The Geary Theater is gorgeous.
The minuses: Long, drawn-out, tedious, and predictable with annoying actors/characters you just wanted to slap due to their overacting. And what's up with a chandelier in the outdoor scenes?

Fun and pun filled but be prepared for the 17th Century English.

Finally, a night out that sends the audience home smiling (and desirous of using a good vocabulary)!

“Deliciously and dexterously plotted.” —New York Times

Description

Written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

The romantic and rich Lydia Languish loves her Captain Jack, but will she find out he’s a wolf in cheap clothing? Will the stern Sir Anthony Absolute turn out to be a big softie after all? And who could refuse to love a character named Fag? Please remain calm, dear audience—this is not a pigment of your imagination. _The Rivals _is the one, the only, the original comedy of errands, and this fanciful classic simply cannot be topped. It is, as Mrs. M. says, the very pineapple of perfection!
