Izquierdo…is impeccable at showing a woman not quite ready for a casual fling after her husband’s death. Izquierdo has something of the beauty Hedy Lamar had in her ‘30s and ‘40s films.
[Color Photo in the Arts Section] naming “…their beautiful friend Diana…
...and Mikaela Izquierdo as the very attractive ‘other woman’, bring to the stage the style of acting that hasn’t been in fashion since the Lunts and Ina Claire went to their rewards.
As Diana, Mikaela Izquierdo is entirely sympathetic. A marvelous, split-second pause when Anne indicates she’ll allow the affair couldn’t be better. Diana’s conscience and gratitude are both made palpable.
Izquierdo makes Diana a genuinely sympathetic creature, left frozen by her husband’s death and brought back to life by Stephen’s touch.
...Walter’s long-absent daughter, Marley (Mikaela Feely-Lehmann, in an attention-getting performance).
Mikaela Feely-Lehmann is especially fine...
Feely-Lehmann kills in this scene, ludicrously drinking coffee creamer and beating the couch pillows together in an attempt to distract Barbara.
Feely-Lehmann suavely suggests Millie’s innate intelligence without overplaying.
Mikaela Feely-Lehmann plays Millie with a shrewd sense of the characters’ two faces. It’s fascinating to watch as she switches back and forth between her public and private personas. Feely- Lehmann is also terrifically funny.
Standing out in smaller roles are... and Mikaela Feely-Lehmann as Vida’s open-minded, very French maid, [David] Auburn’s one new character.
There are also lovely contributions from...Mikaela Feely-Lehmann as a French Maid with a remarkable laissez-faire attitude toward matters of the heart.
