THE PLAY: The audience is treated as members of the 1956 meeting of “widows,” who are celebrating the year’s best quiche.

 

THE PRODUCTION: With little genuine comic content, this silly script borders on absurd. So, it’s up to the cast to help it rise above inane. Despite all of the lame double entendres about despising meat in their quiche, this frantic cast provided plenty of ham (Danielle Williams is a mugging standout). Director Dexter Ramey has managed a manic mood to help disguise the fact that there’s really not much to work with. D. Mark Souza’s period dresses are colorful and fun.

 

THE POINT: Despite the production’s frantic efforts, this silly celebration of the symbolic quiche lacks anything genuinely comic to chew on.

  1. I have to completely disagree with this review. I was at the same showing as TV Jerry and he must have missed the resounding laughter throughout the house. This play was wonderful! The manic mood is what the play is all about, the double entendres add to the comedy, and the entire event is full of chewable comic moments. If you depend on this reviewer to decide whether or not to see it…DON’T. Go, enjoy and decide for yourself.

  2. I must also strongly disagree! I seriously question this reviewers sense of humor! We saw this play along with a packed house, and everyone there loved it! All five women in this play were awesome, the set was great, and the costumes were wonderful. The woman next to me said that she would have paid double to see it! Go and see this play before it is too late, and just have some good fun!

  3. Weeelllll… There’s an awful lot of silly, absurd and manic that defined the comedy of Monty Python, Lucille Ball, Charlie Chaplin and the Keystone Cops. This fun production is a big scoop of raucous frivolity with a pretty important subtext about the not-so-distant past when being one’s self wasn’t “mannerly.” It’s nice to quietly appreciate and acknowledge this truth in the midst of a truly entertaining and enjoyable show. 5LEAQ is definitely a wonderful night out, and our party certainly left smiling and satisfied with Quiche. Big thanks and kudo’s to the cast, crew and RTP for a delicious and delightful evening!
