WIDOWERS' HOUSES Opening: Review by Polly Guerin

PollyTalk's Theater Pick of the Week:

      The official opening last night of the WIDOWERS' HOUSES, a TACT/Gingold production at The Beckett Theatre took the subject of Bernard Shaw's play on a high note of accelerated action. 

      The comedy gripped the attention of the audience while pressing forward with a message about sex, greed and real estate, a subject that resonates with audiences today.
      The spirited rhetoric by a cast of stellar performers with their strong individual presence in  period costumes (circa 1892 the year Bernard Shaw's play made its debut to London audiences) is as relevant today as it was in the Victorian era.
        Director, David Staller, founder of the Gingold Theatrical Group puts a spin on this production that keeps the action moving into the still annoying relevant issues that will resonate with you, and at the same time enlighten and entertain.
        The limited engagement runs from March 15 to April 2 @ $47.75, use discount code: TRWH2 at Theatre Row Box Office, 212.947.8844, Beckett Theatre, 410 West 42nd St.
