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.

I am a Samuel Beckett fan and a Bill Irwin fan and so I was well prepared to enjoy this show. We had inexpensive seats in the back of the mezzanine and we were able to see everything perfectly. There were moments of humor and moments of horror and sadness. Above all I enjoy the words and the words were well conveyed. I was not blown away, but it was an enjoyable evening of thoughtful theater.
