Wiger says the show, which is set in adjoining hotel rooms with doors that constantly open and close to reveal unexpected surprises, is just plain hysterical, a classic farce in every way. Its a great two hours where you can just go to the theater and escape, forget about the economy and politics and everything else. And thats exactly the way the folks running any new theater venue would hope to start up.
