"Les Liaisons Dangereuses" Is Delightful Live Theater in Lenox

We spent an entertaining and engrossing evening at this play, currently being performed around the corner from Brook Farm Inn, Lenox MA, at Shakespeare & Co.  The  intimate theater is a wonderful place to connect with the action, and the costumes alone are worth the price of admission.  Here’s the information:

Les Liaisons Dangereuses

By Christopher Hampton
Adapted from the novel by
Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
Directed by Tina Packer

Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre
January 29 – March 21
2:00 pm / 7:00 pm

Love is the ultimate weapon! This wickedly entertaining story of love, sex and betrayal is as sumptuously guilt-inducing as a decadent chocolate you just can’t resist. Depicting the devious schemes of French aristocrats on the cusp of the Revolution, it heats up the intimate Bernstein Theatre at Shakespeare & Company this winter under the direction of Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer.

Packer directs Elizabeth Aspenlieder, who won the coveted Elliot Norton Award for her tour de force performance in Bad Dates last winter, and Josh Aaron McCabe, most recently seen last fall as Sherlock Holmes (and a host of other characters, both male and female) in the runaway hit The Hound of the Baskervilles. Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) was ahead of its time as a novel in 1782 and it still may be ahead of its time today.
