This hilarious comedy with music has lost none of the charm and outrageous wit of the original, while the lovely, tender score is matched by deft and telling lyrics. Both serve to enhance and heighten the play's ingenious comic invention. This story of double mistaken identities and impassioned romance has long been recognized as a masterpiece of farce as well as a shrewd commentary on Victorian society. A perennial favorite, this new musical version carries a similar appeal for a wide range of acting and musical talents.
"Charming, tasteful, wonderfully beguiling. A delight." - The Boston Globe
