Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

Act 1, scene 1 knocked me out - brisk, clever, captivating! Scene 2 was super long and tedious making the overall time of the play (insides out of 3 hours) too long. That being said, the sets, costumes, lighting, directing and acting were all excellent. And the unique and complicated concept of the plot was quite intriguing. The understudy playing Nightingale did a very decent job but was a tad rough in spots.
Running time with intermission is just under 3 hours.
