What the press had to say about Titanic's "The Third Story."
"In lesser hands, camp and kitsch could easily dominate the production, but fledgling Titanic Theatre Company has found the perfect formula for capturing Busch's madcap magic."
—Nick Dussault, Metro Boston
"The brand new Titanic Theatre Company, dedicated to 'putting up bold, dangerous, pointy-edged contemporary shows,' is off to a bold and stylish start with its production of Charles Busch's "The Third Story… Maybe 'launching' isn't the best word for a company that calls itself 'Titanic,' " the program notes fret. No worries there: Titanic Theatre Company has only to maintain course and it should be smooth sailing ahead."
—KIllian Malloy, EDGE Boston
"The Titanic Theatre Company debuted with Charles Busch's 'The Third Story,' a raucous romp brimming with double entendre, double agents and body doubles, not to mention double dealing and double talk. Would you expect anything else from a Charles Busch show? …Director Adam Zahler teases out every bit of comedy there is in Busch's hilariously lame script. It's not easy to write over-the-top dialogue which floats from laugh to laugh (and never lands with a thud). What a cast Zahler has to make merry with! Dying is easy, as the old saw goes. Comedy is hard. There's not a wink out of place or a sideways glance thrown asunder."
—Beverley Creasey, Boston Arts Review
