I agree, the play was absolutely perfect, polished, and side-splittingly hysterical! Suzie was truly remarkable as Madame Arcati, I often found myself chuckling in response to her body gestures; at the unique sounds that burst from her mouth, and then, of course, at the outstanding delivery of the brilliant dialoque that Coward gifted her character!
All of the other actors were superb as well. As was mentioned in another review, I particularly enjoyed Helena Ball who plays a smaller supporting role, Edith, the maid. Her comedic timing was truly spot on! You have little choice but to literally guffaw in response to her facial gestures or her "baby step shuffle".
The role of Charles can be a very tough one, but the interpretation of his character appropriately built up in intensity. He was never over the top, which allowed many of the other characters to shine with their dialogue. A true sign of a great actor!
I could go on and on about the other actors as well, all delivered truly amazing performances! I implore all that have not yet gone, to go see Blithe Spirit. You will not be disappointed!!!
