Swooning lovers, plucky maids, wily valets, irate guardians, and of course a duel:

this is the world of Bath, which leaps to sparkling life with matchless wit and lively invention in this enduring classic. With all the brilliance of his fellow Irish scribes Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, Sheridan single-handedly revived English stage comedy with his landmark play.

BWW Interview: THE RIVALS at Bristol Riverside Theatre
by Andrea Stephenson - Oct 28, 2018

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals, a comedy of manners, did not receive a warm welcome in it's first performance at Covent Garden Theatre in 1775. After a rewrite, however, it captured the audience's hearts and funny bones, and has been delighting audiences ever since. A new musical version of The Rivals, with book and lyrics by Richard Kellogg and music by Stephen Weiner, will hit the stage at the Bristol Riverside Theatre October 30th under the direction of Eric Tucker. The Rivals is the story of a wealthy young woman, Lydia Languish, who will lose a portion of her wealth if she does not marry someone of whom her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop, approves. Between mistaken identities, scheming servants, and unintentionally misused words, The Rivals is sure to have audiences laughing. The all-star cast includes Harriet Harris, who has portrayed Bebe Glazer in Frazier, Mrs. Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Felicia Tilman in Desperate Housewives, among many other roles. BroadwayWorld recently had the opportunity to speak with Harris about her experience with The Rivals. (more...)
