The Metromaniacs

A week ago we went to The Metromaniacs by David Ives at Theatre in the Round. I wasn't sure what to concern was an early modern French period costume piece all in rhyme.

That's not what it was.  It was incredibly enjoyable.  He (or TiTR) modernized it a little bit with some purposeful anachronisms in talk (phones) and character (ditzy teen girl type) and pushed the rhyme in places to have fun with their farce.

Distilled, it was vaguely Austen-esque and Shakespeare-esque with numerous characters trying to find love with considerable confusion and misdirection.  It was just fun.
