The Arden Theatre Company production of Hedda Gabler, which opened Jan. 27 and runs through Mar. 8, has provided Grace Gonglewski -- who plays the manipulative title character -- with the "deepest, richest performance of her notable Philadelphia career," accorded to a glowing review in the Jan. 29 Philadelphia Inquirer.
The paper also praised the play's "resourceful" direction by Terrence J. Nolen (Arden's producing artistic director).
Gonglewski, a well-known Philadelphia actress (The Real Thing, Major Barbara), has over the years played more than a dozen roles at the Arden.
Also featured in the cast are Greg Wood (Tesman), Tom Teti (Judge Brack), Susan McKey (Thea) and Eric Hissom (Lovborg).
The Arden Theatre is on North 2nd St.in Philadelphia. For tickets, $20-$28, call (215) 922-8900. --By Rebecca Paller
