Reviews are pretty good...and they love my wife, as it should be. ;)
“The Double is a triple threat as a comedy, romance, action play.”
“Leading the laughter with an ode to Rosalind Russell is spectacular, wisecracking Lisa Herceg (Roz). Herceg zings every single line and sets off the laugh track inside my head.” – Katy Walsh, Chicago Theater Beat – 3 and half stars – Highly Recommended
“Lhota's dialogue for this Babes With Blades production crackles with rat-a-tat authenticity while Leigh Barrett's direction keeps the pace crisp and high-stepping.”Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times, Highly Recommended, Critic’s Pick
“It is Lisa Herceg as the grande dame Rollins, though, who makes the most of her material. Herceg kicks it, elegantly, into the highest rafters with her every carefully timed gesture and magnificent line reading.” – Brian Kirst, Sheridan Road Magazine – Highly Recommended
"The Double, Babes With Blades latest offering, is an diverting period piece performed with enthusiasm and moments of panache.” – John Dalton, Centerstage, MUST SEE
"Babes With Blade's The Double is a delightfully zany good time." – Bob Bullen, Chicago Theater Addict, Highly Recommended http://chitheatreaddict.com/2011/09/09/babes-with-blades-the-double-is-a-delightfully-zany-good-time/ “The script, the company's first foray into comedy, was crafted by Barbara Lhota, and reflects an endearment for the company, the period, and the genre. The comedy is broad but not slapstick, and clearly the actors are enjoying themselves as the plot unfolds and the mayhem begins.” – Windy City Theater, Maggid Jim, Highly Recommended
“The story is sharp and clean, and the text is laced with rapier wit. The comedy comes in broad strokes as well as sharp jabs, and the characters parry and thrust the rapid-fire dialogue. “ – Bill Barry Jr., Worth the Price of Admission, Highly Recommended
“The Double is a pleasant surprise; Babes With Blades give a performance that’s unpredictable and laugh-out-loud funny.” - Kaylee Holt, Chicago Theatre Review, Recommended
“What does stand out is the martini-dry dialogue and some delicious swordplay sequences designed by Libby Beyreis.” – Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune
