Dad in the Box

Liz on Theatre

‘Charley’s Aunt’ charms with comedic flair at Shakespeare Theatre By LIZ KEILL MADISON, NJ – Who knew that “Charley’s Aunt” would be such a riotous, ridiculous success?  This 1892 play written by Brandon Thomas has all the elements of farce, disguise, intrigue and absurdity to make it a hit, even today.
