'Misalliance' Opens the Season to Raves at SCR

Honorary Producer Mary Beth Adderley and Director Martin Benson

In his breeziest comedy, Misalliance, George Bernard Shaw posed the question: what differentiates a good alliance from a bad alliance?  His play may or may not have offered a definative answer, but—according to Broadway World—“the journey to ponder the question comes bound in laughter and frivolity!”

That journey began on First Night of Misalliance, Friday, September 12, at South Coast Repertory, and the critics reached for even more metaphors, with the Orange County Register declaring that SCR’s 47th Seaon opened “with a bang!” and the Los Angles Times noting that the evening proceeded at “full gallop!”  First Nighters simply cheered—and gave the cast a standing ovation.
