Review On LIZASTRATA


Rob Stevens

Registered Critic


The free-wheeling script gives the cast a chance to shine and really display their comedy/improv chops as well as other body parts. They seem to be enjoying themselves immensely performing in front of a live audience again after 20 months of isolation. And the audience appreciated their efforts and enjoyed laughing and groaning (at outrageous puns and shenanigans) in the Getty amphitheater. Bring on the Greeks! And the Troubies!
