  • 5 stars "A classic masterpiece, I was just talking about my fondness for this work of art a few weeks ago, and by chance, happened across this one time showing, or was it chance? I will be attending, and urge anyone with a developed sense of culture, and classic respect for the arts not to miss out."

He deserves a Tony for his performance. Positively a delightful experience that will remain in your mind for years to come!"
