Another reviewer in Variety noted of a production starring Tony Randall as Sir Peter Sberidan that Sheridan’s play was “such a superbly crafted laugh machine, and so timeless in delivering delectable comeuppance to a viper’s nest of idle-rich gossipmongers, that you’d practically have to club it to death to stifle its amazing pleasures” — before claiming that this is precisely what the production being reviewed had done.
