  The Bungler at A Noise Within

The Bungler

A Noise Within
3352 E Foothill Blvd Pasadena

The Bungler is comic genius. Moliere's first romp written in verse, and one of the greatest hits of his lifetime. This rarely produced gem is a non-stop cavalcade of wily servants, dim-witted young lovers and avaricious old men on a bumbling, tumbling, tackling, wild and woolly ride. Adjust your seats to the upright and forward position, strap yourselves in, and get ready to laugh!

"...Sometimes unprepossessing plays yield hugely satisfying results, as in this buoyant revival of Molière’s seldom-performed comedy “The Bungler.”"

Stage and Cinema - Somewhat Recommended

"...This theater aspires merely to entertain, and so with all its resources, it consistently somewhat disappoints the playgoer seeking groundbreaking interpretations of the classic works presented here."

Stage Scene LA - Recommended

"...Still, if A Noise Within’s production of this little-known gem is any indication, The Bungler (aka L’Etourdi) is one of the French master’s funniest confections—or so it would seem as conceived by director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott."

Neon Tommy - Recommended

"...As a whole, A Noise Within’s “The Bungler” is a jovial experience, though the play itself can be aggravatingly redundant. However, the cast does fantastic work, and it is genuinely fun to watch."

The Stage Struck Review - Recommended

"...Both Cullum and Newcomer are brilliant – the one radiating energetic intelligence balanced beautifully the other’s blank-but-earnest placidity. Supporting them is an equally impressive cast."
