The second act had the girls finally falling into this trickery. The romance continues to the point where the pairs are engaged and married only to have their original spouses returning back home. A few minutes into this act made me think that the production was somehow dead set against women. The tactics used to seduce the two sisters was an indicator of how shallow women are perceived to be. In the subsequent acts, however, it felt more as if the musicals were too hurried. The orchestra nevertheless tried keep up with the performances but the harmonics still sounded a bit rushed.

Leah Burzynski who played Despina was quite outstanding; her lovely voice and her hyperactive and lively character definitely took the audience’ s attention. She was definitely unnatural especially in the last act as the soldiers pretended to return from war and she took the role of a notary.

However, the first act was most entertaining keeping me much anticipative for the rest of the performance. My overall conclusion on the drama was that if women are to be alike, then so as men.
