“Hardcover Theater contrasts with broad humor and sharp insight, in the stage adaptation of the short story The Witch. A hilarious view of being sexually frustrated and snowbound. Director Ryan Ripley nails Chekhov style perfectly: boldly humorous, yet mournfully aware of the sadness of the human condition.”
