What an atrocity! I love Aaron Posner, but this was a shambles. What was he thinking with this gratuitous update, with bad accents ranging from Italy to Minnesota?

Terrific fun! Merry Wives has always been a very amusing play, but Posner's adaptation to the 1970's was great.

An amusing show-- I'll admit it did make me laugh out loud more than once-- but I wouldn't call it great. Badly obstructed seats really impacted our enjoyment of the show as well.

Cleverly updated, great cast. A lot of fun. Good that it was streamlined since 2.5 hrs was about right but the original would probably have been longer.

A unique amalgam of an old play set in a modern era with the addition of some modern staging techniques. Entertaining and funny.

Such a beautifully-done rendition of the show. Performances are fantastic - well-modernized versions of the characters, grounded without the feeling of "presentational Shakespeare," and hysterically funny all around. The updated setting is...continued

It was just very strange to see this play set in the 1970s. I didn't expect that and it just annoyed me. There were several excellent performances, especially by Mr. Ford and Prunella Scales, but it just left something to be desired. I would...continued

So much of Shakespeare demands perfect acting, or, like a souffle, it flops. Perfectly acted, joyful, exceptional.

The play was hilarious and so well conceived in a 1972 backdrop. I saw the last show of the run. A couple of the actors got the giggles and hard-to-control laughing at Falstaff throughout the 2nd half of the show which made some scenes even...continued

The show is updated to the 1970's era, with clothing, hairstyles and music of that time. The actors are superb and produce many comedic moments. My only criticism is that the performance could have been shortened.
