Reviews
Lipstein, Freddi. Shakespeare Bulletin 24, no. 2 (2006): 110-13.
Peter Marks, Washington Post wrote: "Inspired! This daffy Turkish taffy of a production, enchanting to gaze upon, is end-loaded with ever sillier gags and cameos... a screwball, "Arabian Nights" instalment of the Hope and Crosby "road" pictures’
