“Noises Off”: Funny as ever

A farce within a farce, Michael Frayn’s “Noises Off” is as funny today as it was when it opened 27 years ago. This English mockery of English theater captures the vulnerabilities and foibles of workers in theater, as they are and as they have been, here and abroad, as far back as anyone can remember. The Sacramento Theatre Company kicks off its new season with a stage full of witty actors mocking their witless colleagues (and maybe themselves), as the action takes place both on stage and behind it.
