BWW Review: Victorian Charmer ENGAGED Right at Home at Royal George TheatreBWW Review: Victorian Charmer ENGAGED Right at Home at Royal George Theatre
by Michael Rabice - Jul 11, 2016

The Shaw Festival has unearthed a bit of a gem, that in lesser hands may be considered no more than a cubic zirconium. W.S. Gilbert's ENGAGED is a frothy trifle that seems perfect for a midsummer's night. This delightful piece of Victoriana theatre can best be thought of as a play with thin operetta plot (sans music).

This romantic comedy begins its first engagement at the Royal George Theatre tomorrow, June 15. (more...)
