However, The Night Watcher, which is also at the Rep through the end of the month, is really great. Go see that instead.

Maybe they're just too insular and not participating in world discourse about literature.

The play suffers from trying to please everyone. The plot is for a more mature audience; the jokes are for a young audience. Moreover, there was more hamminess and buffoonery than I could stomach; the sort of over-inflated characters you see in a high school play.

I've heard good things about Night Watcher. I wish I'd seen that one instead.

Doesn't anyone go out without their kids anymore? Are all the babysitters unemployed? Why does all Seattle theater (including the rep)have to be so damn family friendly? Clearly the script writer never read the Dumas book.
It was a cute show and resembled the Disney version and I can't think of anything worse.

Well if everyone follows what Mr. Frizzelle has to say, he'll be out of a job, because everyone is at home watching tv. I believe I was at the same show and I remember hundreds of people having a pretty good time.
