A frothy and fun production!
s 2 & Jane and I went to the Arms and the Man and found it to be interesting different from many Shaw productions. First of all, it was significantly shorter. It was also much funnier than many Shaw productions.
Jackie Maxwell's direction I think reflected Shaw's own concerns that the play was not taken seriously enough by audiences...they just found it a good laugh. She chose a campy, somewhat over the top presentation and we really enjoyed it.
The casting was bang on and the performances were superb. We give it a 3.5 out of 4.
