George Washington's Favorite Play!
14 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, the Broadway Theater Archives were to American public television that Masterpiece Theater is and was to television. This classic comedy drama play about manners, classes, and the problems that arise can be both funny and tragic often at the same times has a first rate cast featuring Blair Brown as Lady Teazy, an unsatisfied married wife, whose husband deplores her youthful behavior. They travel to England and meet and socialize with the British gentry. Mind you that this play was written before or during the American Revolution. There is still that British type of humor and fun with an American cast such as Blair Brown and Larry Gates in roles. The costumes and art direction are first rate and the story and dialogue may be dated but it's worth watching. It's like being at the theater without all the troubles of being there.
