We knew that the script for Harry & The Thief would create a riotous and hilarious world in which we could stage some serious madness.
We knew that playwright Sigrid Gilmer‘s singular perspective and razor-sharp wit would be a perfect match for the Know Theatre MainStage, and that guest director Holly L. Derr would bring her A-game when she staged this manic epic.
It turns out, Cincinnati agrees.
With just two weeks of performances left, the buzz for Harry & The Thief is off the charts.
The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s David Lyman calls Harry & The Thief “a zany sci-fi tale sprinkled with self-referential comedy so smart that it would make the Marx Brothers proud.”
Stacy Sims of Cincinnati CityBeat says that Harry & The Thief “allows us to remember how satisfying it is to be truly entertained.”
Cincinnati’s Sappy Critic, Kirk Sheppard, thinks that “Know Theatre has mastered this type of off-beat, edgy show,” in his latest review.
“But what about the audiences?” you ask? They’ve got plenty to say as well.
From the Know Theatre Facebook Page:
“Harry and the Thief is great. Performances were so good we forgot the minimalist set.”
“Definitely worth seeing. Irreverent and hilarious!”
Fans have been lighting up the Know Theatre Twitter feed, too:
“So Harry and the Thief was the funniest damn thing I’ve seen in a long time.”
“I’m having so much fun watching Harry and the thief at @knowtheatre.”
“Opening night of #HarryAndTheThief was packed and awesome. “
“I already want to tell people to go see Harry & the Thief at @knowtheatre and it’s only intermission.”
“If you are in the Cincinnati area, GO SEE THIS SHOW.”
