“…madcap hilarity…a fantastic example of the versatility within the historical canon.” — “…an immensely intelligent and entertaining piece for any sort of theater lover…” — “LOOSE CANON bridges the knowledge of a theatre history class with the raucous fun of sketch comedy. …Literate without being pretentious, funny without being dumb, LOOSE CANON is a delightfully fun time.” —
