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

The program mentioned that the play was by the best Polish writer, one of his popular, recognized plays, and that the writer had been nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature. I sat in stunned disbelief throughout the play, so did most of the audience. What I saw did not reflect the positive description at all. These were disjointed scenes of two young girls trying to find out what sex was all about, reading descriptions in a book, having dreams and nightmares, interrupted by scenes of lustful men chasing after anything in skirts, confessions of a wife who hated the physical demands of her husband, of a grandfather who still was plagued by his physical desires, descriptions of his perversions perpetrated upon his granddaughter. I can't believe that this poor excuse for a play was entirely the author's fault. More likely the problem was the direction. This is the third really bad play I have seen at the Odyssey within the last few months.
