LA Times Reviews The Rivals at Culver City's Actors' Gang Theatre

Los Angeles Times Theater Critic Charles McNulty reviewed the new play at the Actors' Gang Theatre, saying "there are hearty laughs to be had from this scattershot spray of silliness from 1775."

He continues: "True, the goofy flamboyance often seems a tad effortful. But the fireworks of Sheridan's verbal wit are still mesmerizing. Whenever the focus shifts from the central lovers to the tyrannical patriarch Sir Anthony Absolute and the linguistically erring Mrs. Malaprop (played respectively by VJ Foster and Patti Tippo on the night I attended), the years separating us from Sheridan's era melt into timeless hilarity."

Regular tickets are $25 (although all Thursdays are Pay-What-You-Can). For tix and more info, go HERE.

The Actors Gang Theatre is located at 9070 Venice Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232
