"It’s been hilariously revived at the historic 13th Street Repertory Theatre in a punchy production lovingly directed by Joe John Battista...Extravagantly playing up these stock characters’ exaggerated traits, the cast is exuberantly in overdrive, yet Mr. Battista steers them to a sense of reality. Though appropriately broad, each characterization has truthful depth...This jubilant incarnation is pleasurable on many levels, demonstrating that its fondly recalled cult reputation is justified."
