5 Stellar Reasons to See Arms and the Man!

1 - People who see the show have a Great Time!

 Superb...Highly Amusing... I laughed out loud throughout!

Check out Goldstar to read audience reviews!  Goldstar Reviews


2 - The Cast is Extremely Talented.

Michael John Casey*, Daniel Flint, Mark Krawczyk*, Chris Mancusi, Amy Quiggins, Brynn Tucker, Ellen Young  "Comedic chops... perfectly timed glances, biting observations cloaked in humor, and-in the case of Quiggins and Casey, especially-palpable tension and chemistry." - The Washingtonian


3 - The Design is Beautiful. 
"Technically gifted set and lighting designer, A.J. Guban, exhibits a pleasing know-how in the physical conjuring of a show. The flexible set pieces he devises for each of three long scenes of "Arms and the Man" are minor engineering miracles." - The Washington Post


4 - George Bernard Shaw is brilliant.

 There's a reason he won the Nobel Prize for Literature and it wasn't humility.

 "Extraordinarily witty, brilliant and clever" - Shaw, on himself


5 - Arms and the Man is hilarious, and yet inspiring.

 Shaw challenges us to be honest with ourselves and to follow our hearts

"I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got of for the moment; and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." - Shaw
