Review By Debbie Fein-Goldbach NOW Rating: NNNNN
This enchanting show, based on English writer Jerome K. Jerome's 1889 travelogue and adapted for the stage by Mark Brownell, is the witty account of three friends and a dog who take a boating holiday along the Thames and encounter hilarious, often self-imposed obstacles.
Actors Matt Pilipiak, Victor Pokinko and Scott Garland go beyond the eccentricities of the period to define their individual characters amidst squabbles, anxieties and parochial viewpoints. All theatrical elements - Nina Okens's meticulous costumes (with especially wonderful shoes), lighting, props and J. Rigzin Tute's whimsical musical arrangements - come together beautifully under Sue Miner's superb direction.
