BWW Review: Reboot Theater's PRIVATE LIVES Very Witty, Slightly Wonky
by Amelia Reynolds - May 9, 2017

Elyot (Kit Lascher) and Sybil (Alysha Curry) are on honeymoon in the French Riviera. It's 1930.

BWW Review: Isolation and Romance Pervade Theatre 40 in Handsome Revival of Rarely Seen SEPARATE TABLES
by Don Grigware - May 22, 2017

Dated? Most definitely. Terence Rattigan's Separate Tables is about 1950s morality as it was experienced in Great Britain. Things have changed over 60 years; let's hope first and foremost that women are treated more humanely by men, and secondly, one's social class - does it even exist today? - is much less a priority.  On another level, it's fascinating to witness the desperate loneliness that existed - and still may- among both young and older couples, particularly when they're encumbered with one addiction or another. That's Rattigan's Separate Tables with two completely different lead couples in each act who try to uncover or rediscover the meaning of love. With expert direction from Jules Aaron and a superb ensemble of players, Theatre 40's Separate Tables is quite a handsome and emotionally charged production. (more...)
