BWW Reviews: ARSENIC AND OLD LACE at Chaffin's Barn

BWW Reviews: The Back Porch Players' TEA AND SYMPATHY is Incredibly Relevant and Extremely Powerful
by David Clarke - Aug 12, 2013

The Back Porch Players are dedicated to presenting theatrical works that deal with the ideas of identity and social responsibility. They also uphold that the art form of theatre is a powerful teaching tool. They are currently producing Robert Anderson's Tea and Sympathy, which had its Broadway premiere at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on September 30, 1953. In its original Broadway production, it ran for over 700 performances and was adapted for film in 1956. However, the play wasn't given a major New York City revival until 2007, when The Keen Company produced the show at the Clurman Theatre. Even though the play is nearly 60 years old, it remains incredibly relevant and extremely powerful. (more...)
