Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

Participating in a round table before the New York opening of "A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur" in 1979, Tennessee Williams identified "loneliness" as the "main theme" of this rarely produced play, which closed after just 36 performances, reflecting the fate of so many late Williams plays when they first appeared.

That didn't deter Milwaukee Chamber Theatre artistic director C. Michael Wright from including "Creve Coeur" in the current Chamber season, resulting in an exceptionally well-acted production that opened Friday night under Leda Hoffmann's direction.  Alternately funny and poignant, it's another welcome reminder that late Williams deserves much more attention.
