"It's high time we were reminded again of what a great physical comedian Kevin Kline is. Playing an aging matinee idol in the bouncy new revival of Noel Coward's "Present Laughter," Mr. Kline blissfully plies the witty athleticism and derring-do that won him two Tony Awards and an Oscar in his youth."

reviewer: from New York, New York
Wonderful Noel Coward play with excellent performances by all involved. And of course, Kevin Kline is exceptional. The set is clever. No skimping there. Lots and lots of humor throughout. As for Garry Essendine's (Kevin Kline) inability on numerous occasions to reach the hallway entrance without pausing at the mirror to satisfy himself that his appearance is up to par..... Well it's brilliant. And the frequency with which numerous attractive women seemed unable not to lose their latch keys well ......................... (sorry enough said until you see the play). As one of Coward's lines in Present Laughter goes in referring to a play that is part of the plot: "It might actually work in New York", Thanks to Kevin Kline and company, Present Laughter certainly does.
