High spirited mash-up of commedia dell'arte style, dance, poetry, jazz, camp and farce with a satisfying stinger in its tail/tale

See it if for the delightful over the top ragtag ebullience that can best be captured and appreciated at the Fringe & Kevin P. Joyce's witty poetry.

Don't see it if neatness & formality are required. Although Xavier Reminick and Ben Dawson are terrific in the lead male roles, the performances are uneven

Absorbing, Delightful, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you come to the Fringe to see talented actors going all out to present ambitious, well written original theatre that aims at classic scope.

Don't see it if you just can't get there for some reason and want to wait and pay more to see it at the Delacorte some day

Theatre is Easy
August 17th, 2016

"Plot development is interspersed with various song and dance numbers ensuring that the audience remains overjoyed as well as captivated for the duration. The complete devotion and superb character work from every member of the ensemble creates more than a story—together, they truly create their own world...This production, brilliantly written, creates a modern Commedia...One of the best shows I've seen in a long time."
