PRIVATE LIVES White Heron Theatre
By Noel Coward
"The biggest revelation of this production is the richness of characterization that director Mark Shanahan the five actors- Jeremy Shamos, Nina Hellman, John Ellison Conlee, Celia Keenan Bolger and Jan Neuberger- have discovered behind the glittering surface of Coward's brilliant repartee and verbal virtuosity.
...An exquisite production...delivers wave after wave of Coward's sophisticated humor."
- The Inquirer And Mirror
"Don’t miss this very entertaining, chic and cheeky cynical look at love! White Heron Theatre has done it again with their production of Noël Coward’s Private Lives: they’ve brought New York to their Nantucket stage... transformative."
"Shamos and Hellman play a divorced couple who meet again on their honeymoons with other people – and can’t stay away from each other. To play the other two people in those relationships, top choices were Broadway actors Celia Keenan-Bolger and John Ellison Conlee, and in what Shanahan says was a rare chance to get just the cast you want, the couple said yes."
