Contrasting forces — from their spouses and from each other — are excellently portrayed by Corbett and Miller, who are characterized by antic emotion and stiff-upper-lipsmanship, respectively. Corbett is delightful in her fits of righteous outrage, while Miller cools things off with his proper English demeanor. Both are far more than supporting personalities.
Completing the stage picture is a Parisian maid, Julia Etedi, who speaks nothing but French throughout her brief appearance. She may be incomprehensible, but she's a hoot, nevertheless.
Bruce Goodrich's elegant setting and Julie Keen's colorful costumes enrich the production considerably, as does the subdued lighting effects of Paulie Jenkins.
