Coward stands the test of time! Written in the '30's, this play was amusing and interesting. Superb acting, great sets, and an intimate theater setting. There is nothing to be critical of with this performance. I just wish I were as rich as the characters in the play. If you haven't yet, go see Private Lives!

Been to some good plays via Goldstar, however I did not feel this was one of them. The actors seemed quite capable in their roles, but the story and dialog seemed antiquated and negative. I would not recommend this one, however 2 stars seemed too...continued

Passion, anger, love, laughter and romance all shaped by Noël Coward’s wit and comic genius sets the stage for perpetually dueling lovers Amanda and Elyot. In Coward’s most celebrated comedy, the two divorcees unwittingly book adjoining rooms while honeymooning with their new spouses, and quickly realize the folly of their new marriages. Impulsively and in the dead of night, they flee only to be caught days later by their jilted spouses while in a most compromising situation. Don’t miss Noël Coward’s stylish, savvy comedy about modern romance and the people we can’t live with—or without.
