The Blue Room - 1998 - Broadway

As sexual encounters and expectations of love fill the senses with hope of fulfillment, the next episode emerges. David Hare's adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's once banned Reigen transfers the action from Vienna circa 1900 to present day. The audience voyeuristically experiences a provocative daisy chain of relationships. The episodes, teasing to satisfy, scrutinize sexual morals and class ideology of human mating rituals. These rituals resonate...as clearly today as they did a century ago.
