My overall impression

Let me say up front I ‘have a complex relationship with “theater about theater.” Not that I don’t enjoy it (at least when done well, but that is true of almost everything—on the other hand I cannot bring myself to care if a football game is played well or reading new depths of wretchedness—but I digress)! But to be honest, an “in joke” by definition tends to lean too heavily on the references rather that any inherent humor.

Having said that, I actually laughed at one point so hard I couldn’t stop! Nor was I alone! Pretty much the entire audience lost it so hard the players literally had to wait for us to stop! Which gives you some idea of just how funny this show proved to be at its best!

At its worst? Well, honestly a small handful of jokes didn’t earn more than a smile. Interestingly, those that amused me least were the bits most referential to theater itself…
