“Sparkling and Timely ”

East Lynne Theater Company
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 October 2016 via mobile

A classic from 1932.
East Lynne Theater delivers a gem of theatrical history; that is totally relevant today.
Snappy direction and a spot on cast make this another ELTC hit.

For a theater company whose mission it is to stage decades-old American classics, East Lynne Theater Company never fails at finding plays with timeless and universal themes and presenting them in the most timely manner! Such is the case in this election season with their current production of Biography, a 1930s comedy about a brewing political scandal. Like many of East Lynne's shows, Biography echoes current events and holds a mirror to today's front page headlines. The chemistry among the 8-member cast was theatrical alchemy at its finest! The direction, stunning period costumes and stage set made Biography an overall stellar production. East Lynne Theater has topped themselves once again! A loud and resounding BRAVO to East Lynne Theater Company!

East Lynne is my favorite theatre company in Cape May. They have a mission unlike anyone else's--they do plays from America's past, or plays about America's past. BIOGRAPHY, by S.N. Behrman, is such a play---a big hit on Broadway in 1932. I read it a long time ago, but I had never seen it. The East Lynne production is wonderful. It's simple--they don't get bogged down in production "values"---but well acted. I found myself enchanted by the words, the situations, the people. Go---and take your children--in case you didn't know, they admit children twelve and under free.

Every year, we visit Cape May and take in the latest show at East Lynne Theater Company. Dracula was wonderful. Gail, the artistic director, adds her touch to every show she produces. A great time is always had by all!

This year, the difference was that before 7:30 you have to pay $10 dollars that goes to the church mission project to park. It is usually difficult to find a parking place in Cape May, we get their early have dinner then go to the play, so this year we had to either find a parking place to eat, and then hope there were places to park left when 7:30 came or play the $10, which we did.
