Magnificently acted by Susie Lindeman, an almost ‘Greek tragedy’ filled with force and great fragility. Lindeman
moves with grace, knowing perfectly how to command the space, passing with ease from Vivien’s little girl to the more serious lover of Larry. The direction by Wayne Harrison is perfectly staged , with magic he transforms a simple table into a grand theatre
stage then into a bed in which Vivien glides with voluptuous Hollywood glamour. A big bravo also to the excellent lighting designer Martin Kinnane . What an honour for Paris to welcome this creation for its world premiere. Hurry and discover this show for
its limited season, otherwise you’ll have to get to London New York or Sydney. SORTIZ- Paris
Even if you do not know the language of Shakespeare, Donald Macdonald’s
poignant play is so filled with emotion that you will understand in your heart what escapes you by words. A remarkable actress, Susie Lindeman, commands the stage with an infinite grace and in possession of a wild energy for one entire scene is played on a
table with surprising dynamic. There are several trump cards to Wayne Harrison’s direction to which Susie Lindeman lends herself marvelously. The changing lighting states compliment the ensemble. There is high tension in Letter to Larry, and Susie Lindeman
literally fragments . This is the revelation of a magnificent actress.
