“Drama diehards should vote for this kind of nervy programming with their wallets; [Strange Interlude] is by far the most adventurous entry in the spring’s Eugene O’Neill Festival.”
The Washington Post
“Thanks to director Michael Kahn’s keen vision, inspired casting, skillful editing and beautiful pacing, the play positively flies. Francesca Faridany is absolutely stellar.”
STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, yet controversial, drama about love and deception. Heartbroken over her adored fiancé’s death, Nina engages in a series of sordid affairs before marrying a man she does not love. Months later, pregnant with her husband’s child, she learns a horrifying secret about his family, setting off a dramatic and emotional chain of events that spans two decades. One of O’Neill’s early plays, Strange Interlude was hailed as revolutionary, shocked 1928 audiences–and became a smash hit. Michael Kahn’s production of another O’Neill classic, Mourning Becomes Electra, was called a “raw force” by The Washington Post.Read Michael’s blog, Stage Interludes from Michael Kahn, on DC Theatre Scene.
