BWW Reviews: Mark Taper Forum's WHAT THE BUTLER SAWBWW Reviews: Mark Taper Forum's WHAT THE BUTLER SAW
by Don Grigware - Nov 25, 2014

Joe Orton's insanely insane world in 1960s England is no better displayed than in his third and final play What the Butler Saw now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum through December 21. A terrifically energized cast are on hand as is seasoned director John Tillinger, but things got off to a somewhat slow start opening night and really did not start to cook until Act II. It might be the width and depth of the Taper stage, which is not easy to cross that rapidly. I saw a production a couple of years back at the Odyssey, and the space being half the size, entrances and exits were quicker as was the tempo of the whole play. (more...)
