Brilliant Shavian production
23 September 1999 | by peachamSee all my reviews

Rex Harrison delivers one of his most gripping performances as Shaw's crusty Capt. Shotover as he presides over his seaside home filled with family and guests. Shaw uses the Shotover cottage as a substitute for England itself in this, his most profound work. The flavor owes much to Chekov and the performers evoke the right balance between Shavian humor and Chekovian slyness,in addition to Harrison George Martin's Boss Mangan is a particular standout. But the whole cast is fine and the production a rare treat.
