Noël Coward’s timeless ‘Lives’
The playwright’s the thing in a revival at Huntington Theatre and exhibit in New York.
The Noël Coward beat: At Lincoln Center library, his public lives come to life
At Lincoln Center’s Library for the Performing Arts, the vagaries of time, of shifting critical reputation, the many hues of theatrical “truth,” all hover around Star Quality, the Library’s new Noël Coward exhibition. Coward’s singular theatrical world—acerbic, irreverent, and yet gossamer—is brought memorably to life.
Mad About NYPL'S "The World of Noël Coward"
The best new show in town right now is at Lincoln Center. But I’m not talking about the mighty War Horse, which even after a year is still packing them in at the Vivian Beaumont, or even 4000 Miles, the endearing Amy Herzog play now in previews at the Mitzi Newhouse.
No, the show I’m talking about is next door to the theater, in the first-floor gallery space in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, where the new exhibition “Star Quality: the World of Noël Coward” is running through Aug. 18.
