January 8 - February 8
By Noel Coward
Directed by Darko Tresnjak
"His spirited, lighthearted direction here may be even more fun than his work on Gentleman’s Guide."
Amanda: vivacious, sexy, sophisticated. And Elyot: virile, charming, seductive. The epitome of a 1930′s cosmopolitan couple. Until the divorce. Five years later, they are horrified — yet intrigued — to bump into each other while honeymooning in a French hotel with their new spouses. With its stinging barbs and clever wit, Private Lives is Noel Coward’s finest and funniest comedy.
Too much snow? The January blues got you down? Well, pack up your swimsuit, put on some fabulous summer clothes, and escape to the French Riviera and to Paris, circa 1930.
Join Elyot and Amanda, the couple who wrote the book on The War of the Roses and taught Mr. and Mrs. Smith everything there is to know about the battle of the sexes.
And enjoy our sun-kissed, exuberant, youthful - and athletic - take on the comedy classic.
