"Maria Aitken is the foremost interpreter as an actress of Noël Coward in our time," artistic director Michael Kahn said in a previous statement. "When I saw her production in Boston, it was a beautiful treat and is an excellent send up to Coward's aesthetic."
"Noël Coward's quick-witted comedy opens in a blissful hotel in France where divorcées Elyot and Amanda are on honeymoon with their new spouses," press notes state. "One evening, the ex-couple discover each other on neighboring balconies and as they try to maintain a veneer of etiquette and respectability, old feelings make matters complicated. What follows is a boxing match of words, manners laced with subtext and glamour that rendered this play as the epitome of Noël Coward's style and technique. Private Lives is a witty and irreverent play about the people we cannot live with or without."
Private Lives features scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Candice Donnelly, lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg, sound design by Rob Milburn and musical arrangements by Michael Bodeen. Daniel Pelzig is choreographer, Ted Hewlett is fight choreographer, Ellen O'Brien is head of voice, and Barbara Irvine is music director.
The creative team also includes literary associate Drew Lichtenberg, assistant director Gus Heagerty, production stage manager Leslie Sears and assistant stage manager Elizabeth Clewley.
