We have less control than we think over who we fall in love with. Dinner With Friends meets La Cage aux Folles in this fanciful gender-bending soufflé about a pair of ex-spouses and their new mates. When the four get together for the first time in years, a delightful mess of romantic complications ensues. Terri Hanauer directs this world premiere of The Way You Look Tonight, which was written by Peter Lefcourt (who won an Emmy for his writing on Cagney & Lacey). Playing a cameo role and acting as catalyst to some of the action is ... a pair of Fluevog shoes. Because everyone knows you can never underestimate the power of cool shoes when it comes to matters of the heart. Learn More
