The Blue Room
March 05, 2009
by David Hare
Spring 2009 Main Stage Production
An insightfully witty meditation on men and women, sex and class, lust and power, this contemporary re-telling of Arthur Schnitzler’s early 20th century La Ronde takes on the Freudian subject of projection and reinvents it in a bittersweet landscape that is both eternal and completely up-to-date. Its original production became a sensation in London and one of the most sought-after tickets of its Broadway season.
