Last night was the first performance of Knight of the Burning Pestle. I commented to one of the actors at Wednesday’s dress that it felt like the whole thing has come together, gelled, at the point where the play is being conveyed properly. That even if the audience isn’t comfortable with the language of the Elizabethan era, they would be able to get the quirks and twists of the dialogue and the plot. Last night’s performance proved it. The house was more full than I expected for a Thursday opening night, and from where I was sitting, they were having quite a fine time.
But don’t take my word for it. You could ask people who were at the show last night, or better yet, you could come see the show for yourself. There are performances tonight and tomorrow at 8, and next Thursday and Friday at 8, and Saturday at 2. Tickets are $15 each, and the theater itself id just outside of Davis square, so super easy to get to. I’m very impressed with all the cast and crew and it’s an amazing production. And if you don’t laugh, I’ll even refund your tickets myself.
