We're big fans of the movie with Hepburn, Grant, and Stewart. The script of the play closely followed the script of the movie with a few minor alterations in the plot. I think this production was very good, but it lacked the timing of the movie. If I weren't familiar with the movie, I'd probably give the play four stars. The cast did a good job.
Quotes & Highlights
“Altogether delicious… pure theatrical champagne.” —Chicago Sun-Times
One day before her marriage to a successful businessman, haughty socialite Tracy Lord is sure of herself and her future. However, with the surprise arrival of ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven and the tempting presence of tabloid reporter Mike Connor, Tracy’s perfect vision of herself is shaken to the core. It will take a bottle of champagne and a compromising situation to crack her forbidding exterior and reveal an understanding heart. This classic comedy of manners by Philip Barry finds that sometimes getting what you want means learning to let go.
