Direct from London, this haunting multimedia love story transforms Noël Coward's classic tale of forbidden passion between a suburban housewife and a married doctor. Unfolding in a 1938 railway station tea room over a series of stolen afternoons, this new production by the UK's acclaimed Kneehigh Theatre creatively interweaves Coward's one-act play Still Life and David Lean's 1945 film Brief Encounter. Film, music and stage acting converge to bring you what London's Daily Telegraph calls "a first-class return to romance." The New York Times writes, "Don't be ashamed if you feel a bit like swooning." This production at the Wallis features the original Broadway cast, headed by Hannah Yelland and Tristan Sturrock.

The parking is under the theatre and can be approached from S. Santa Monica or Crescent. Parking is $8 currently, but if you come in before 6 pm, be sure to pay the attendant on your way out rather than at the kiosk. The kiosk will charge you triple(!) because it is programmed to assume that people entering prior to 6 pm were there for city hall business rather than the theatre. (I got this tip from the parking attendant).travel • Dec 11 2013 star this tip starred

Parfumerie is a must for anyone who loves the classic movie, Shop Around the Corner or its modern re-imagining, You've Got Mail, and for theatre-goers who love well-acted, beautifully staged productions with great characters. The sets and costumes magically recreated Busdapest in 1937 and never once did the actors break the spell. I was truly transported to Hammerschmitt's Parfumerie just before WWII. Richard Schiff's performance as a man whose marriage may unravel at Christmas and that of the young man playing Arpad the delivery boy who helps him through it, are not to be missed. The young lovers are charming as well, and Arye Gross is wonderful as always. The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts is a new jewel in Beverly Hills that I look forward to visiting again and again.
