Set aboard a roaring, jazzy 1928 steamship bound for America, two playwrights are trying to rehearse (and complete!) their musical comedy, while diffusing a lively and passionate love triangle between the show's composer, the lead actress, and the lead actor.
Verbally witty, physically funny and constructed with Stoppard's unique and brilliant style, Piccolo takes crossing a sea of hilarious troubles to new comedic heights.
Here's what our critics say:
"Joyously bounds full-steam ahead. The always funny Deborah Craft steals the show. The production is perfect for Piccolo, whose members are adept at performing shows that absurd, funny, and bawdy." –Brian Murphy, Evanston Roundtable
"Stellar production. A fine cast rises to the challenge. –Tom Wittom, Pioneer Local
