Dublin by Lamplight is a theatrical delight, highly stylized and combining elements of silent movies, burlesque, slapstick, Commedia dell?Arte, and Story Theatre. Each of the six actors in the cast has a major role to play, but each also plays anywhere from another three to seven minor roles as well ? and they all perform absolutely wonderfully across the board. Moreover, this is a production that can be enjoyed and appreciated on many levels ? as a delightful phantasmagorical romp, as a metaphorical commentary on life imitating art, or on the very survival of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Indeed, the day I saw the play marked the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and one might even draw parallels between the play?s message and the indomitable spirit Americans have exhibited since that tragic day a decade ago. I have posted an expanded review of this play and of many other Broadway, off Broadway and off off Broadway plays on my blog www.aseatontheaisle.blogspot.com.
