I saw Metropolis’ production of Private Lives on the Thursday preview performance and was very impressed by the timing of this production. The pacing in this type of play is very difficult to get correct and they did a fantastic job. It seemed like they had been performing for months, not just the first preview performance. The cast blended together and the relationships were very believable. You know that the relationships created on stage are believable when the audience is reacting with gasps and exclamations. The set was wonderfully constructed and I was impressed by the set change between the first two acts as well as the lighting. To sum things up it was a great production showcasing a believable and realistic interpretation of married people.
