LOVE IN BLOOM


This tongue-firmly-in-cheek bawdy musical comedy features dainty damsels, dashing rogues, and lusty wenches who run gaily amok in the beleaguered town of Hamelot. In this world premiere Rudie-DeCarlo tribute to the heroes and heroines, wenches and rogues of the Bard, magic and mayhem, fops and fairies, mistaken identity, romance and humor abound, and a complimentary dessert and nibbles buffet at intermission makes this the best theatre evening in town. The eight-member cast, in the renowned Actors’ Repertory Theatre commedia-carnival style, creates a host of over thirty characters, bringing to the stage all the stuff that dreams (and musicals) are made on to insure that Jack will have his Jill, and all’s well that ends as you like it. “This is a company that knows what its audience expects from an evening of theatre.†L.A.
