DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...There is high-quality professional work sometimes hiding in plain sight in the offhand, informal world of The Hypocrites’ Pirates. What is obvious from start to finish is that this production is just sheer fun, as audience-friendly an evening as one can imagine."

"...“The Pirates of Penzance” have set shore in the unlikely enclave of the Olney Theatre Center. The touring troupes The Hypocrites and The House Theatre of Chicago, both based in the windy city, have collaborated to bring this condensed production to Olney’s intimate Mulitz-Gudelsky lab space, a repeat tour for these fun-loving young professionals who are quite proficient in this niche and imprint their own zaniness to this classic work. Operetta light?"

"...The Hypocrites' Pirates of Penzance shows the world what it needs in theater today: a reversal and rejection of outdated morals and modes of interpretation, a show that demands liveness and revels in the risk that liveness creates, and an expertise that can only be appreciated in person. There's no theater in DC that does these things as well as the Hypocrites, though I hope our local artists will take inspiration from them, so catch them while you can. Maybe then these Pirates can board your heart as they've boarded mine."
