If you love the theatre, chances are youíll get a kick out of this clever, slapstick comedy about the business of staging a play. And if thereís something familiar about it, itís undoubtedly the fact that it has the feel of a Woody Allen work. This isnít a bad thing; itís all done extremely well Ė and by a New York theatre company, which gives it an authentic Allen air.

what do you mean opens with a fledgling playwright battering out his sacred prose on a typewriter, only to be joined by a motley crew of theatre folk Ė characters in the play he is writing Ė who teach him about the process of getting his play staged and explain all the technical terms.

Itís a little confusing, what with some actors operating both as characters and commentators, but itís great fun with some memorable, Marx Brothers-like moments, and snippets of dialogue worthy of the Manhattan bard himself.
