BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Brings THE PHILADELPHIA STORY SouthBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Brings THE PHILADELPHIA STORY South
by Joseph Baker - Apr 27, 2015

George Cukor's 1940 film version of Philip Barry's The Philadelphia Story was Katharine Hepburn's return to glory after the actress had been labeled 'box office poison' after the failure of several films. 021The savvy Hepburn was able to bend MGM to her will when it wanted to film Barry's play, and the end result rewarded everyone involved: Hepburn, her old RKO co-star Cary Grant, and the up and coming James Stewart. Not only were Oscar nominations and wins in store, but at the center of it all was Hepburn in all her patrician, high cheek-boned elegance. She may have given greater performances as the tragic, dope-addicted 'Mary Tyrone' in the film version of Eugene O'Neill's LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT or as the caustic, sparring 'Eleanor of Aquitaine' in James Goldman's THE LION IN WINTER, but for those who want to see Hepburn at the height of her unusual beauty and comedic gifts, The Philadelphia Story is a must. Having seen the film numerous times, I was wary of Theatre Memphis' staging of Barry's work. The Philadelphia Story, once seen, leaves such an impression that it's rather like tackling a remake of THE WIZARD OF OZ or GONE WITH THE WIND or THE GODFATHER. Director Jason Spitzer has taken the dare, and he and his cast have mostly succeeded in the satiny, stylized production currently playing at Theatre Memphis. (more...)
