Fun, fast-paced comedy. Nice, intimate theatre. Crisp, professional acting. The set is amazing. I love going to Northside. I always come away with a good feeling.

It was kind of funny and a little slapstick. Left after the first half because my husband was getting twitchy (it was hot in there). You have to be a theater buff to appreciate it and we're not that sophisticated. Good effort, though.

A comedy by Murray Schisgal

Directed by Richard T. Orlando

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Milt hopes to wed another woman, but his wife, Ellen, won’t grant him a divorce. But Milt’s solution — to match Ellen with his suicidal college friend, Harry — proves to be hilariously disastrous for all involved. Murray Schisgal’s imaginative 1964 comedy, which was well received in its original Broadway run, now comes to the Olinder Theatre.
