I thought the acting was GREAT, but didn't care for the play itself...maybe I need to stick with musicals :)

Description

This play-within-a-play examines the adage that “life imitates art,” or is it the other way around? A compelling story of love, commitment, and adultery leads us into a crisis-strewn relationship between a playwright and an actress in a search for “real” love. Tom Stoppard, known for his exact use of language, has created a smart, sexually-charged stage piece examining the nature of honesty and reality.
