The Play's the Thing
By Ferenc Molnar, adapted by P.G. Wodehouse
Directed by David Frank
A dream comedy. Spend a gorgeous summer's eve. In a castle overlooking the Italian Riviera, circa 1920. Meet a famed playwright and his lifelong collaborator. Traveling with them is the composer of their new operetta. He's due to marry the show's diva, rumored to be joining him here.
But then, oh my word, an impassioned conversation overheard from a neighboring bedroom. That's absurd! Disbelief. Then shock. Worlds come crashing in, all is lost. The new show, the marriage-to-be, the musical lad himself. Resigned to a perfectly odious, melodiously suicidal end.
These characters are magnetic. Such panache and dash. Flamboyance, extravagance. What an absolutely splendid romp.
