Anybody who thinks R-rated culture is an outgrowth of the liberal 1960s and yearns for the perceived decency of good old days has never seen or read a Thomas Middleton play—or many plays by his contemporaries, for that matter, including one William Shakespeare. Just as the current box office hit 21 Jump Street is in-your-face raunchy comedy, but played with a sweetness of heart by its stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, et al., so is A Mad World, My Masters a bawdy romp of subtle and not-so-subtle sexual jokes, played with a sense of soul by its stars Daniel Kennedy and Gregory Jon Phelps, et al.
Watching both modern movie and 400-year-old play were laugh-a-minute passages of time well spent.
