Notes

Reviews
Of the radio broadcast Michael P. Jensen writes ‘the studio audience rarely laughs at this comedy, and several actors vocally mug their lines to force the issue, which seldom works. They end up laughing at each others lines and sometimes their own, but the audience rarely joins them’ Burt, Richard (ed). Shakespeares After Shakespeares: an Encyclopedia of the Bard in Mass Media and Popular Culture (p. 575 entry 2613)
