Those are just a few of the accolades that critics have bestowed on Table for Two Productions' presentation of Noël Coward's classic comedy Private Lives that has its final performances March 22 – 25 at GTC Burbank Theatre.
Directed by Jules Aaron, Private Lives stars Stasha Surdyke and Lenny Von Dohlen as perpetually dueling lovers Amanda and Elyot, two divorcees who unwittingly book adjoining rooms while honeymooning with their new spouses (played by Annie Abrams and Jeff Witzke). They soon realize the folly of their new marriages and impulsively flee together to Paris, only to be caught days later by their jilted spouses. This stylish, savvy and still-timely comedy is loaded with pointed barbs about modern romance and the people we can't live with-or without.
Written in 1930, the original London production of Private Lives starred Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence. A Broadway production followed in 1931. The play has been revived several times on Broadway, and has been produced in theaters around the world.
Tickets: $34.50 for adults, and $29.50 for seniors and students.
Performances: Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m., through March 25.
