The cast of Noises Off includes Kathleen Choe (Belinda Blair), Kimiye Corwin (Poppy Norton-Taylor), Michael Crane (Garry Lejeune) , Gopal Divan (Lloyd Dallas), Philip Goodwin (Selsdon Mowbray), Ellen Harvey (Dotty Otley), Adrianna Mitchell (Brooke Ashton), Jason O'Connell (Frederick Fellowes), and Phillip Taratula (Tim Allgood).

Produced at Two River Theater 20 years ago in the company's fifth anniversary season, "Michael Frayn's Noises Off belongs on any list of the funniest plays ever written. In this celebrated backstage farce-within-a-farce, mayhem ensues as a third-rate touring theater troupe rehearses and then performs the ill-fated Nothing On."
