Champagne-light Noel Coward story
4 December 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a bubbly backstage tale of a young innocent playwright and his first produced play. The best thing here (among many great things) is the usual unforgettable quality Ian Richardson brings to the mix as the director of the play. He and Coward are a perfect match of writer and actor. If one is into this sort of thing, "Star Quality" is near perfection. If you're asking, "What is 'this sort of thing?'" it's a pretty safe bet you won't care much for it.
