Swordplay

 

Review


As a musical re-adaptation of Edmonton playwright David Belke's first work, Swordplay doesn't quite manage to meet audience expectations of an updated, new-and-improved piece of theatre. While the cast is exceptionally funny and talented in its performances, the clunky insertion of poorly rhymed and scored musical numbers only serves to bog down this clever comedy of errors. Instead of revamping the actual structure and substance of the show, this new adaptation seems to merely shoehorn in a few sing-song summaries at various points in the plot, and the rest of this otherwise very entertaining production suffers for it. —Brad Kennedy
