BWW Reviews: SONG AT TWILIGHT Dims in the Modern Age
by Lauren Yarger - Mar 4, 2014

In Noel Coward's time, and when one of his last plays, A SONG AT TWILIGHT was written in 1966, it must have been shocking to have the possible outing of a closeted gay man be the driving force of a plot.

It moves to Westport Country Playhouse April 29), especially when there are so many other great plays out there just begging to be produced. (more...)
