Delightful, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you like a good comedy with some twists and turns performed by a great cast on an interesting set providing an enjoyable two hours.

Don't see it if you do not understand Spanish and you become weary reading subtitles - there's a lot to read among many characters & they lagged the action.

Confusing, Difficult to read translation screen, Dated, Great acting, Funny

See it if You like broad comedy. Zulema Clares has superb comic skills. The rest of the cast are also admirable. The set is clever and attractive

Don't see it if You need translation. Formerly it was possible to watch the stage & read. Now a single overhead monitor means missing action to read.

Engaging dialog, Good direction, Interesting plot, Fine acting, Entertaining

See it if for fine acting & dialog, interesting plot, insightful character analysis and their emotional interactions.

For a previous production

"Just about any visit to Repertorio Español reveals how many accomplished actors the company has at its command. This time around, the name to note is Zulema Clares as the title character…'Filomena Marturano' is often fun, but you might find yourself becoming a bit impatient with its cast of indefatigable schemers."
