Expect healthy dose of laughter
BR Little Theater play full of verbal, physical comedy
by George Morris
The Advocate - Baton Rouge 5/11/11

Notes: Notes on this show? Hmm, now where do I start? First off, when Keith asked if I would be interested in directing this show, of course I jumped at the opportunity and said yes! As a first time Director it was with excitement and some apprehension that I went into auditions, but once started it became a nonstop roller coaster ride at breakneck speed right up to opening night. Happily, I was able to assemble a wonderfully talented cast and I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with them. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy the fruits of our labor.
On to the show itself. If you didn't know already, "It Runs In The Family" is a farce. Farce, by definition in theatre, is a comedy which aims to entertain the audience by means of unlikely, extravagant and improbable situations. Ray Cooney (the author) has been described as the modern-day master of the British Farce and I believe this play is proof positive of that statement.
So what is this play all about? It is basically a little over two hours of time in the life of Doctor on what is probably the most important day of his life and career. But, don't look for any underlying meaning, moral message, or hidden metaphor; this show is comedy, plain and simple. "It Runs In The Family" is for the sheer enjoyment of the audience (and the cast)! So let's all go on the roller coaster together and share a significant day in the life of a very special Doctor. Sit back and enjoy "It Runs in the Family."
