Jeeves Takes A Bow: A Fantastic Farce -Extended to June 24!

Jeeves Takes A Bow delivers delightful deliberations between friends

Jeeves Takes A Bow is being put on by the Taproot Theatre Company. Adapted for the stage by Margaret Roether from the “Jeeves and Wooster” stories by PG Wodehouse, this hilarious performance is directed by Scott Nolte.

A delightfully quaint story, all taking place in the bachelor apartment of Wooster, unfolds before your eyes with this play. This play has it all: mistaken identities, love, the intricacies of high-society, familial obligations, prohibition and a gangster, the relationship between a man and his infinitely insightful valet, and even a musical within the play! Every line is laced with some clever pun or acerbic wit, causing an eruption of laughter at the shock of the audacity of the characters.

Each actor did an excellent job embracing the absolute absurdity of the various moments of the play, from the erudite Jeeves to the rich and blissfully unaware Binkey and Wooster. Every moment they are all able to convey either a sharp tension or weave in highly amusing digs at one another, switching back and forth with ease.

The set design is quite nice, with the contained setting of the play allowing for quick movement of characters in and out of the bachelor apartment, all transpiring in a square stage visible on all sides. I really liked the way it was set up and the way the actors utilized the space. The costumes were delightful, appropriately spiffy or outrageous as the situation required, each fitting the character perfectly.

I highly recommend this showing, it was thoroughly exciting, engaging, enlightening, and smartly funny. Jeeves Takes a Bow is showing at the Jewell Mainstage Theatre at the Taproot Theatre, accessible from the 45 bus. It runs just shy of 2 hours with intermission from May 17th to June 17th.
