Chesterton Play Has Legs
“In the nation’s capital, the Washington Stage Guild production of G.K. Chesterton’s play “Magic” has been extended through Feb. 6—a happy outcome for a work that isn’t produced often in the United States. I managed to catch the show the other day, and found it witty, atmospheric and affecting. The ideas and aphorisms sure do fly by at a mile a minute: Reportedly written at the suggestion of Chesterton’s pal George Bernard Shaw, the script feels very much like a piece Shaw would have written had Shaw been a believer.”
“Magic” extended through Feb. 6th in Washington, DC. Still works after all these years. Check out the Washington Stage Guild for more information.
