About this show

"GO!" raves LA WEEKLY. "100% SWEET" exclaims Bitter Lemons. "Best Bets!" exclaims L.A. Times, "Barnum and Bailey mixed with Monty Python, with flights of verbal artistry and plentiful belly laughs." It's the internationally acclaimed Rudie-DeCarlo musical THE FOOLS, a romantic, ever-so-slightly naughty comedy filled with laughter, intrigue, sword play and racy musical numbers, based on Moliere's delightful confection, Les Facheux, extended by audience demand. Presented by the renowned Actors' Repertory Theatre in true Commedia dell'arte style - the 17th Century's counterpart to Saturday Night Live. THE FOOLS asks the burning question, "Which of us are the bigger fools--those of us who play our foolish games upon the stage…or those of you who pay your hard earned francs to watch us do it?" Find out weekends at Santa Monica Playhouse. You'll laugh and laugh and laugh some more. The Valley Vantage hails THE FOOLS "a show with great potential to become a national, even Broadway, hit show!" and Dani Margolies of Arts in LA announces, "Commedia dell'arte is alive and thriving!" Special discount prices for groups of 8 or more - the perfect weekend theatre experience for you and your whole group of friends.
