What the critics are saying about The Beaux' Stratagem:
"Delightful! A charming production!....Lewis Shaw earns top marks for choreographing the slick and very funny sword fighting." 
— WYPR's Maryland Morning

"Five stars! Wildly hilarious! You'll be hard pressed to find a moment to breathe between all the fits of side-splitting laughter." 
— DC Metro Theater Arts

"A glowing success!" 
Maryland Theatre Guide

"Highly recommended! Laugh-a-minute performances! Summer would not be the same without froth and Everyman's Beaux' Stratagem puts on the spritz with lightness and style." 
— DC Theatre Scene

Swashbuckling fun from start to finish, this vibrant new adaptation of Farquhar's classic restoration comedy from the masterful minds of Thornton Wilder (Our Town) and Ken Ludwig (Crazy for You) is full of dazzling wordplay, swooning damsels-in-distress and dashing sword-fight rescues.  The original wing-man comedy, two young gents tumble head-first into love in ultimate romantic comedy fashion proving 300 years hasn't changed a thing when it comes to love!  Wilder and Ludwig's sparkling adaptation infuses Farquhar's tale with enchanting characters, fun and frolic.
