“Fine setting and costumes, but most importantly, all actors are “ in the moment”. Not easy to achieve in period comedy. The humor is broad, as fits the style, but absolutely full of life...This production benefits from Ellis’ inspired work, focused on interaction and energy, making a very good case for this delightful restoration comedy.” 

— American Prize Competition Judge’s Comments

Director Daniel Ellis has made certain that every single scene is simultaneously well spoken, madcap Restoration in style, and fluidly natural….All of Ellis’s briskly paced actors portray the machinations with saucy relish and just the right touch of grandiosity.”

— Lavender Magazine (John Townsend)
