In case you haven’t figured it out by now, Lifeline Theatre’s Monstrous Regiment is, well, a monster. The amazing reviews continue to roll in:
“FOUR STARS… The best thing about Hainsworth’s script and director Kevin Theis’ crackerjack staging is that it manages to fully inhabit the realm of the ridiculous while tipping its hat to Pratchett’s essentially humanist/feminist concerns. … If there has been a more accomplished comedic ensemble on a Chicago stage this year, I’ve not seen it.” – Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune
“FOUR STARS… Replete with running gags and blink-and-you’ll-miss them jokes, Monstrous Regiment even manages a few surprises and largely transcends its fantasy roots. Whimsical summer fun rarely come as delectably packaged as this!” – Scotty Zacher, Chicago Theatre Beat
“The latest world premiere from the ever-inventive Lifeline Theatre is a comedic triumph, a wonderfully funny absurdist romp that caps off the company’s terrific 2013-2014 season.” – Peter Thomas Ricci, Chicago Theatre Review
“Kevin Theis (the director) took me on a fun filled, plot/brain twisting adventure that kept me laughing and more importantly… thinking.” – Justin Allan Kimball, Showbiz Chicago
Our first two weekends were pretty much sold out. Tickets are available through the Lifeline Theatre box office at (773) 761-4477, or online at lifelinetheatre.com.
