    Ludwig has some great comedies to his credit; LL doesn't jump off the page like his other stuff has for me MOON OVER BUFFALO for example A lot of this is the same farcical tropes we see a lot of in comic theater Nevertheless I think that with strong direction and a creative cast this could be a fun romp for the audience 35 4 ish stars
