A fine production of the play.
12 August 2001 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Faye Dunaway's Georgie Elgin is a fine characterization of a very complex character. If your only knowledge of this piece is the film adaptation, you'll find the full play an enlightening experience. (We could only wish that Grace Kelly was given the FULL original script to film, as her portrayal of Georgie is so extraordinary.) If you've seen the film, give yourself a treat, and view this fine production of the full play. It's an opportunity to see Dick Van Dyke in a purely dramatic role, and Ken Howard as the director, Bernie Dodd. Good play, well done!
