Cant give it a 5 because while its a great Coward play, the excitement Id heard didnt live up to it, however, it is a really good, laugh out loud, well written play, and you can never go wrong w/NC and the Roundabouts stage. Glad I saw it, would recommend it, just a bit predictable.
2hr. 30min. (2 intermission)

My idea of perfect lighthearted, well- written, well-acted, always- in-fashion theater. The actors could not be more beautifully cast. Victor Garber is simply sensational, and so debonair and droll I laughed the whole time. The dialogue is so snappy I wish I could talk like that! Dont miss it!!!
The rather talky first act sets up the rest of this funny Noel Coward play. Victor Garber is perfectly cast as Garry Essendine. In fact, there are strong performances throughout. The set design by Alexander Dodge deserves a Tony award.
