    November is a thin but amusing satire that gives hell to the chief executive

    It's a few days before the election, and Charles Smith, the sitting president, is hoping for a second term. Trouble is, his poll numbers are in the toilet (or, as the script has it, "lower than Gandhi's cholesterol"), he's intensely incompetent, no ...

    Noises Off has laughs, but fails to take farce to a deeper level

    Michael Frayn's brilliant Noises Off is one of the cleverest, funniest farces ever written. This is a play within a play -- actually, a play outside a play. It depicts the struggles of a third-rate company touring the English provinces in a corny se...
