What a lovely romp down theater’s memory lane, as navigated through the letters of Harold Clurman and Stella Adler. I admittedly had been more familiar with the work of Adler, through the school of acting that carries her name and continues to inspire film actors today. I wondered what challenges were posed to a father-daughter acting team in portraying such an intimacy. To my delight, the characters were delivered with the poise and aplomb that marks their written “repartee” and the commensurate talent of accomplished actors in their own right. Bill Ratner fully captures the zeitgeist of the times as well as Clurman’s droll disquietude. Arianna Ratner is a stunner, exhibiting the wit, charm and substance of the legendary Adler, as proven through the appearance of the real-life Stella Adler in short film by Sheana Ochoa screened immediately after the performance. This production proves there is a Method to this Madness and should not be missed!
