Ruth Draper was a pioneering actress in the early 20th century, taking the stage with only a chair, table and shawl as her props and transforming into myriad characters during her monologues. Now Academy Award-nominated actress Annette Bening is stepping into Draper's shoes and performing some of her most famous monologues, including The Italian Lesson, Doctors and Diets and A Debutante at a Dance. Bening is known for her roles in American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right, Mars Attacks and Running with Scissors. Now you can watch her play a harried society woman, debutante and etiquette instructor all in one night of Ruth Draper's Monologues. Learn More

The show is short and it will hold your attention, but there is a distinct lack of sensationalism and therefore fun in what is at its heart a melodramatic piece. I don't think John Doyle is the right director for this piece, he keeps too much control and doesn't let the melodrama flow. Instead, we get a lot of yammering about good vs. evil, even to the point of absurdity in the play's last few minutes. There are some good performances but don't go in expecting to see the movie!
