Or as Durang would say: 'Their hidden reservoirs that haven't been tapped.' (more...)

BWW Review: Lindsay Crouse Enlivens LETTICE AND LOVAGE at Gloucester Stage CompanyBWW Review: Lindsay Crouse Enlivens LETTICE AND LOVAGE at Gloucester Stage Company
by Nancy Grossman - May 30, 2016

Written by Peter Shaffer (EQUUS, AMADEUS) for beloved British actress Dame Maggie Smith, Crouse takes on the title role of tour guide Lettice Douffet and makes it her own with panache and good humor.
