    1. Pretty funny I can definitely see myself reading this again in the future, although it is a bit reminiscent of Dom Juan Thus, its originality lacks a bit However, it is quite poetically written, which makes it pleasant to read.

    2. I love farce, and this is a really good one I would be very interested to read this in Corneille s original French which would require me to learn French because there were a ton of Shakespeare references, and I wonder whether those are Ives addition or whether Shakespeare had reached such canonical status in France by 1643 that Corneille could casually throw in lines from his plays I found allusions to Hamlet, Othello, As You Like It, King Lear, and the sonnets, and I m sure there are to find [...]

    4. This is the third play I ve read adapted by David Ives and he is simply brilliant He honors the original plot by preserving its humor while updating the text and making it relevant and acceptable to current audiences Comedies are much harder to adapt because the original text often contains a lot of inside jokes that were humorous at the time the play was conceived In order to maintain its comedic affect, the play must be updated and David Ives does so with flair.

    5. A good farce and humorous Definitely a Plautine plot with the confused identity and the roles of servant and father supporting and impeding the young lover I listened to the LA theatre production and enjoyed it enough to hope to see the play one day I think overall I prefer straight or dramatic theatre though.
