‘NOISES OFF’ IS A DISASTROUS DELIGHT

New Harmony Theatre’s first show of the season is a complete disaster.  That’s great, since the script for Michael Frayn’s backstage farce-within-a-farce maps a furiously choreographed, madcap dash toward that destination.  Armed with Frayn’s map, director Michael Unger, his production team and 10-member cast, followed through with a frothy, frenzied, often breathlessly funny evening of folly. It was a wild, bumpy ride, with ax attacks, crashing scenery, pratfalls on sardine-slicked floors, and a full-body tumble down a flight of stairs. The entire cast plunged through the show’s polyrhythmic choreography of door-slamming entrances and exits, axe, cactus and sardine attacks with abandoned precision. Book it while you can. – Evansville Courier & Press Evansville, IN
