"Nearly stole the show... buffoonery"

As if one comic character were not enough, Strummer’s Dr. Bartolo nearly stole the show. He stumped and gesticulated around his quarters, exploding at every revelation of the Count’s machinations and Rosina’s impertinence. His voice and his costumes brought to life his gentlemanly position and escalated the effect of his buffoonery.
