The weather was sunny. I wore jacket, blouse and jeans. But most even for the matinee were dressed to the 9's..

The food was okay but a bit expensive. I would recommend you look up a happy hour within a 10-15 minute radius. There are many options on Hope Street.

Description

Meet the Cavendishes, the first family of the American stage, as they sword-fight, swoon, and act their way through their daily lives, proving the old axiom, the show — and the family — must go on. Kaufman and Ferber’s 1927 classic comedy is fast-paced, uproarious, and full of larger than life eccentrics.

“The Royal Family” is a fond valentine of the then-reigning stage family in America, the Barrymores. It is the first of six collaborations between George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber — two of the greatest names in 20th century American literature.

Their most popular works together include “The Royal Family,” “Dinner at Eight” and “Stage Door”.

Stars (alphabetically): Richard Cox, Robert L Devaney, Barbara Dirickson, Ellia English, Daniel Gerroll, Melinda Page Hamilton, George S. Iriving, Charles Kimbrough, Bobby C. King, Alan Mandell, Kate Mulgrew, Eve Roberts, Marian Seldes

“Moments of high comedy, which Moore and his cast mine for all they’re worth. THE TOTAL EFFECT IS ENCHANTING.”

Paul Hodgins, The Orange County Register
