BWW Review: APT's PRIVATE LIVES Passionately Explores How Long Can Love Be Perfect?BWW Review: APT's PRIVATE LIVES Passionately Explores How Long Can Love Be Perfect?
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Aug 14, 2015

Noel Coward's popular play Private Lives currently on stage at American Players Theatre might be ripped from modern entertainment headlines. These scenes of two recently divorced spouses reconnecting for a romantic tryst could be versions of Duchess Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew living unmarried under one roof (after their long ago divorce) and wishing for royal approval to remarry. Or perchance reminiscent of Gyweneth Paltrow and Coldplay's Chris Martin separating and naming their split a "conscious uncoupling," Coward's 1930 production appears more believable decades later, continually relevant for contemporary audiences.
