Interior Set

The renowned comic actor and author of Picasso at the Lapine Agile provides a wild satire adapted from the classic German play about Louise and Theo Markes, a couple whose conservative existence is shattered when Louise's bloomers fall down in public. Though she pulls them up quickly, he thinks the incident will cost him his job as a government clerk. Louise's momentary display does not result in the feared scandal but it does attract two infatuated men, each of whom wants to rent the spare room in the Markes' home. Oblivious of their amorous objectives, Theo splits the room between them, happy to collect rent from both the foppish poet and the whiny hypochondriac.

The play moves along really well.  The characters are well created, and the humor is broad but not too broad.  My only observation is that the play tends to tail off right at the end.  The king's entrance creates a big guffaw, as does the rest of the action while he is on stage.  However, once he exits the play kinda drops, right at the end - that has to be handled more subtly.  I think the play is better than "Picasso at the Lapin Agile", myself.
