New Edgecliff Theatre, which has done well in two previous seasons reviving classic works, launches its 13th season with 'The Night of the Iguana,' sometimes called Williams' "last great work," with two local professionals in its leading female roles (Kate Wilford and Annie Fitzpatrick). NET has given it a strong visual production (designed by Melissa Bennett), set in a seedy Mexican hotel.
The moral of the 1936 comedy 'You Can't Take It With You' is pretty simple: Don't work too hard, and life is for living. Paint, write, manufacture illegal fireworks in the basement — do whatever makes you happy. Not all the actors on the Showboat Majestic, however, embrace this message.
