"As delightful a respite as one could hope for in the gloomy days of winter...Vesely's staging fires on all cylinders." - Chicago Tribune★★★½

"A funny, thoroughly charming production....the return of Jeeves is as welcome as a reunion with old friends." - Daily Herald ★★★½

The Story

When Bertie gets himself into another scrape, Jeeves must resign his service and re-invent himself as something other than Bertie's Gentleman’s Gentleman. This sequel to First Folio’s hit production of Jeeves Intervenes features the return of Christian Gray as the lovably loopy Bertie Wooster and Jim McCance as his unflappable butler Jeeves.
