Review On Arsenic and Old Lace


Dan Berkowitz

Registered Critic


"Arsenic and Old Lace" isn't “cutting edge” in any way – even the murders are done with poison, not cutlery – but it's a good, solid, old-fashioned play being given a good, solid, old-fashioned production. Warm and fuzzy is kinda nice, come to think of it.
