For the theater-goer who's leery (or weary) of bestiality jokes, make no mistake: this Hound is not for you. Another point of contention for audiences might be what some might call an over-reliance on homoerotic innuendo as fodder for humor — Oh my God! Two men in a compromising position! — which feels a little dated. But the show is good-spirited and tireless in its silliness, and its three actors pull it off with dashing, giddy lunacy. So if your theatrical tastes run to the groundling, check out the Hound. You'll be as happy as a pig in — well, you know.
