ReviewSource Variety
Review Sketch writer David Ives says, "When I go to the theater I want to see something unlike anything I've ever seen before. I don't want the movies, I don't want TV." Yet the first thing that springs to mind as Ives' zany "Lives of the Saints" takes to the Berkshire Theater Festival main stage is classic TV --- "The Carol Burnett Show" to be precise. Ives' latest collection of comedy skits shares that beloved series' delight in skewering mores and morals, relishing funny accents and costumes, and generally wreaking anarchic, comedic mayhem...There's more than a little of the movies' Marx brothers in them, too. If they were consistently up to such standards, they would be welcome indeed. In fact, they are intermittently hilarious --- intermittently being the operative word...Overall, "Lives of the Saints," though prompting some laughter, is slim pickings.
