BWW Review: BLACK COMEDY at Ojai Art Center TheaterBWW Review: BLACK COMEDY at Ojai Art Center Theater
by Cary Ginell - Feb 1, 2016

For the first ten minutes of Peter Shaffer's knockabout farce, Black Comedy, the stage is dark, as engaged Londoneers Brindsley Miller and Carol Melkett get ready to receive wealthy German art collector Georg Bamberger, who they hope will purchase Brindlsey's latest modern sculpture.
