For a cast of Five Actors.
"It is possible that there isn’t enough French farce in the world. Mark Shanahan’s delightful update of this nineteenth-century classic takes its spirited door-slamming to a series of vaguely nineteen-thirties, vaguely Parisian hotel rooms... You won’t regret your evening in the Hotel Ultimus—but keep an eye on your spouse, and your hat."
