If you are accustomed to seeing paired down black box productions at the Flashpoint venue, the well-crafted nineteenth century salon will be a pleasant surprise.The fact that this production feels as polished as it does is a little short of amazing given the snow-related rehearsal difficulties and some late casting changes. Given the skill and enthusiasm that the fledgling Ambassador Theater team has shown with the little-known Summer at Nohant, I look forward to their future productions.

“…a production that is both haunting and powerful. The intimate space forced awareness to the message of the play. The set seemed to fill up a space that is considerably small, creating a larger than life effect.”
