Broadway Review: "The Royal Family"

The Manhattan Theatre Club’s lavish new revival of The Royal Family, the 1927 Edna Ferber  and George S. Kaufman  comedy snaps, crackles and pops under the sharp direction of Dough Hughes (Doubt).   The old chestnut, loosely based on the Barrymore clan runs a weighty three hours with two intermissions.  For all that, it never bogs down or stops vibrating thanks to a fine cast led by theatre grand dame Rosemary Harris and future theatre royalty Jan Maxwell.
