Private Lives opens September 10 at TheatreWorks
Next up on TheatreWorks's season is the classic Noel Coward comedy, Private Lives.The play offers a biting and hilarious look at modern relationships as it follows a divorced couple forced to reexamine their failed marriage after booking adjoining rooms with their new spouses on the French Riviera. Showtimes are 7:30pm Tuesdays through Fridays, 2pm and 7:30 pm Saturdays (no matinee September 12) and 4pm Sundays through September 27.
This month's Prologue promises to be a special one. John Lahr is perhaps most famous for being the son of actor Bert Lahr, who played the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. But he's also a respected show business personality in his own right as the longtime theatre critic for The New Yorker and biographer of such theatrical luminaries as Noel Coward and Tennessee Williams. A discussion Lahr starts at 2:30pm on Sunday, September 20 in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theatre. Afterwards, Lahr will sign his new book, Joy Ride: Show People and their Shows, a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most important playwrights of the last 70 years.
See you there!
