Published Reviews

"The third time is a charmer for P.G. Wodehouse in Jeeves Takes a Bow (adapted by Margaret Raether). These gossamer and champagne comedies...run as smoothly as a vintage Rolls."

Chicago Tribune

"Jeeves Takes a Bow is all silly fun...a wonderfully comedic escape from our complex day-to-day concerns. We need more Jeeves!"

Chicago Critic

"...another effervescent Margaret Raether adaptation of a Wodehouse tale."

Daily Herald (Chicago)

"...a frothy piffle of a comedy that's gleefully, mindlessly silly...with all the depth of a champagne bubble, Margaret Raether's adaptation of a P.G. Wodehouse story is a lighthearted diversion."

The Doings--Oak Brook (Chicago)

"...two hours of zaniness!"

Around the Town (Chicago)
