My roommate told me about this show because she is a fan of the director and she was right- its the funniest thing I've seen in ages. It was lush and witty and so skillfully sculpted. It just kept getting wilder and funnier and then a touching twist at the end- It was a blast. Why aren't there more shows like this out there?

Wow. My boyfriend and I saw the Sunday night show and it was amazing. Funny script, beautiful sets, costumes and lights and the direction was impeccable. One of the best shows we had EVER seen in LA. Kudos to Circle X.

This is one of the best acted and designed shows I have ever seen outside of a major professional theatre. The set design is inspired, and is easily the equal of shows I have seen at the Taper and Kirk Douglas. Don't be put off by the title, this is basically a harmless and quite funny British period comedy with a bit of thinly disguised sexual innuendo. It's no more "pornographic" than you might find in a play by Joe Orton or Oscar Wilde. My husband and I are in our late 50s and enjoyed it immensely, as did our 20-something daughter and her boyfriend. Highly reccommended.

My friends had to convince me to go to this because I usually don't go to theater, but this was HILARIOUS. Seriously, it's like Blackadder but even funnier. We had a great time. Everyone should go!!! It definitely beats EVERYTHING on TV!

Very funny play. It's just a really fun time. The actors are excellent, and the set is really wild. I'd definitely recommend it.

The show is a blast - not at all what you'd expect from the title - perfect for the holidays and you don't have to sit through the 1,000th version of "A Christmas Carol".

What a delight! A naughty knee-slapper with a heart and satirical teeth.

Absolutely fantastic evening... perfectly cast, hysterically funny farce on upper-crust English infidelties. And the set and costumes are beautiful. What a treat!!!! We loved it.

We really enjoyed Love Loves a Pornographer. Very funny. Interesting script. Victorian England meets wild west, decadent America. Nothing is as it seems. Highly recommend. Great set, too!

Love Loves a Pornographer - excellent!!! a great story line and a cast to match! Just when we thought there was nothing to add to Victorian farces comes one to best them!

I thoroughly enjoyed this production! "Love Loves a Pornographer" was so clever, well acted and a refreshingly intelligent script! loved the set and the Ford was a great new venue for me.
