Dickens In America
By James DeVita
Directed by C. Michael Wright
This is Mr. Dickens’ farewell to America, and, failing health be damned, tonight he is a marvel of witty, thrilling colloquy. He slips seamlessly into characters of his own creation, amplifying classics the likes of Oliver Twist and Great Expectations. In the space between, he returns to himself, his charming, of-the-cuff insights ringing with hope. And melancholy. Because this is also his goodbye to the audience he so loves. But like great literature, great goodbyes ignite the soul, even when they’re long past spoken.
