On Approval Extended!
We’re adding an extra week to the run. Here are some of the great reviews:
Sparkling performances buoy revival of British comedy ‘On Approval’ – “They’re having a dashed good time over at Washington Stage Guild, dredging up a positively ancient drawing room comedy, “On Approval,” and giving it a jolly trot round the old park. Director Steven Carpenter and his four-member cast do considerable justice to British dramatist Frederick Lonsdale’s 1920s bauble. …Lonsdale’s dialogue can still sparkle, and that the performances are good enough, and in one case, terrific enough, to earn audience approval. … “On Approval” stays classy and awfully amusing.” – Jane Horwitz, The Washington Post
5 STARS! “…this zinger-packed confection is not only a tasty delight about love and romance. In the aftermath of second-wave feminism, it’s a fascinating blast from the past full of pith and vinegar about women, men, and sex….a polished production of a real gem. Those who like dry wit with a bit of gist will be dazzled.” – John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Theater
“On Approval” is a great way to spend a warm spring evening, especially with a date.” – Andrew White, Broadway World.com, DC
“Pleasingly, what the company does have to bring is top-notch, as all four performers, all the designers, and Carpenter give us great stuff to look at and listen to…” – Brett Steven Abelman, DC Theatre Scene
