Marilyn Cutts in Falstaff


2006 NR

In a hilarious send-up of Verdi's final opera, itself an adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor," director Tony Britten's irreverent comedy centers on the blundering high jinks of a portly would-be golfer named Big John Falstaff (Ian Jervis). Angling for a way to avoid paying his enormous bar tab, Falstaff looks to seduce one of the many female suburbanites who frequent the golf course.
