The Blue Room
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.
