**** Recommended **** Here’s the thing – I really wanted to like “The Bardy Bunch: The War of the Families Partridge and Brady”. As I watched the beginning of the show, I heard people laughing but I didn’t see/hear anything funny. I was ready to be disappointed, but as the show rolled along, it got funnier and funnier. By the end, people were really laughing and guess what? I did like “The Bardy Bunch”! I give it 3 ½ Spotlights.
“The Bardy Bunch” runs through November 27th at the Mercury Theater, 3745 N. Southport, Chicago. Running time is 95 minutes, no intermission.
