Eric Miller and Nick Reid were funny and frantic as suitors in pursuit of the chirping charmers Kitty and Amy (Brittany Nicol and Kattie Maggart.) Kiril Sheynerman and Julia Hays brought a small measure of comic dignity to the roles of Sir Francis and the real Aunt Lucy - while Jacqueline Wheeler was ever so spritely as the girl in love with the Aunt in Disguise. Beleaguered servant Brassett (Matt Land) brought great "takes" and contrasts to the agitated sophisticates. The black and white set (Priya Rane) was intricately painted with line sketches suggesting both elegance and cartoonishness. All the actors were deftly juggled in and out of the three doors and into a wild array of fun poses fast paced timing by director, Rob Roznowski.
