Listener Opinions

    " Delightfully clever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 10/31/2013

    " Saw this at the Guthrie and it was rather funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robby Johnson | 8/8/2013

    " so funny. I want to play David one day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate O'Hanlon | 4/26/2013

    " Better on the stage than on the page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pindari N. | 3/19/2013

    " The first time I read it I didn't understand what had just happened. Then I saw the play, and I said "Aaah." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yi-Sheng | 10/12/2012

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/3/2012

    " I'm furiously studying Hay Fever since I'm set to direct it at Fresno Pacific. If anyone has seen a production or has any insight, let me know! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pandafeet | 6/27/2012

    " 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 Donna | 5/6/2012

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jenn | 9/11/2011

    " Apparently based on a true story, which... I can't even. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linze | 2/1/2011

    " Hilariously witty and full of fun characters... I would read it and then see it live if at all possible! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/1/2010

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/2/2010

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 7/10/2010

    " All the plays were entertaining and easy reading. Interesting views of relationships given by Coward in his writing. I'm fascinated by the fact that in all three plays he either directed, staged or starred in the premiers. Makes me want to know more about him personally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 6/20/2010

    " I think Noel Coward is a brilliant playwright and comedian, and these three are my favorites! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 5/19/2010

    " Coward wrote the most amusing, fast-paced dialogue ever. If you haven't read his plays, you're in for a treat. Even the few specifics of the times don't date them. They glitter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 8/22/2009

    " This is for Private Lives: A fun play. Very cute. Very English. Pretty funny. Wouldn't suggest reading it but perhaps go see it on the stage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxie | 3/18/2009

    " Blithe Spirit holds up as well on page as in the theatre. It is a delightful read, full of wit! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha G | 11/8/2008

    " Not nearly as fun as seeing the plays live, but still a good time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruyu | 7/2/2008

    " First learned about the playwright on Economist. Also learned that he wrote Private Lives at the Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
    More spirited (and less refined or elegant) than Wilde's plays. Sometimes it reads like a romantic movie script. Might check out the movie version sometime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serena | 3/2/2008

    " Lovely and silly. I found 'Blithe Spirit' the most entertaining. Now I really regret missing 'Present Laughter 'back in January! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tosh | 10/23/2007

    " Ground Zero for witty plays that were written in the Twenties or early 30's. Very classic in its style, and biting dialogue. Coward overreached in many cases, yet one realizes that there is only one Noel Coward, and that, is not a bad place to be at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 7/1/2007

    " No one does flippant like Noel Coward. But rather than seeming superficial, there is a righteousness to the point that he often makes between the lines. Fast, easy, satisfying reading. Fans of Oscar Wilde and others of that comedic ilk will be delighted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rolls | 3/19/2007

    " Three of the funniest plays written in the language. "Blithe Spirit" is an even more wondrous comedy since it deals primarily in death. "
