Review On OTHERWISE ENGAGED


Don Grigware

Registered Critic, Writer


Director Linda Alznauer has led this production with exceeding caution, paying attention to every detail. Michael Robb as Simon is superb, leading a wonderful ensemble. Simon Gray's writing is bold, astute and fun. Chris Winfield's set is on target for a London flat in 1975.
