caught on the hop , by Derek Benfield
Never a Dull Moment
Wednesday, June 10, 2009
5.0
"Caught on a Hop" was a hilarious romp, which, though thoroughly implausible, was totally believable as acted by the fine cast. Earnest philandering Phil and helpful yet frustrated George have dynamic bro-mantic interaction. Maggie is played as a sensible and layered woman that you want to root for, even against the wide-eyed, enthusiastic Julie (who becomes understandably shrill as her fairytale begins to unravel). Mrs. Puffet is a laugh riot as the opinionated housekeeper, and is played with a deliberate physicality that ratchets up the humor even further. Mr. Brasset, the newly minted firefighter, brings the straight-man funny accented by priceless facial expressions.
The low point was when Greta inadvertantly(?) flashed the audience with her undies. Though some may consider that a highlight.
Overall, awesome. Everyone had great stage presence and handled the accent well. Would make a great date night/afternoon - go see it - it's still running!
