    " Better on the stage than on the page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 6/29/2013

    " Great 'screwball comedy' style theatre - reading it made me think of Katharine Hepburn! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pandafeet | 4/30/2013

    " I've never seen this one performed but I love the reading of it, it has such a too too too very very tooness about it which many would see as a fault but I think it's delightful funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yi-Sheng | 3/24/2013

    " More puzzling than riotous. A demented portrait of a Bohemian family that exchanges romantic partners as casually as socks. Terribly interesting, but I'll need a stage production in order to truly envision it. "

    " I read this play for a class in high school and then went to see it on Broadway. I remember thinking it was dated and not easily related to by a 17 year old, but then I enjoyed the stage production. "

    " I read this because of reading Private Lives in my British Comedy class last year. I love reading plays, and Coward is very funny, though slightly cruel at times. "
