BWW Review: THE ECCENTRICITIES OF A NIGHTINGALE Beautifully Tells a Tale of Romantic Love and Spiritual LongingBWW Review: THE ECCENTRICITIES OF A NIGHTINGALE Beautifully Tells a Tale of Romantic Love and Spiritual Longing
by Shari Barrett - Jun 25, 2016

Tennessee Williams' subtly seductive play centers on the passionately complex and sometimes cruel relationships to which love becomes vulnerable, when we are strong enough to allow it. (more...)
