Thoughts on the play
Remarkable....sharp and clear"
-Michael Feingold for The Village Voice
- Catherine Rampell for The New York Times
"[An] elegant and polished revival....a devastating portrait of high society and the moneyed set"
- Victor Gluck for Theatrescene.net
The New York Society Library presents its exhibit: Edith Wharton's New York City: A Backward Glance.
Visit The Mount - Edith Wharton's home in Lenox MA
Edith Wharton's novel of Society heart and heartlessness, adapted with the author by the master of the turn-of-the-century stage, Clyde Fitch. Lily Bart is radiant, witty, and admired--but nearly destitute. Her refusal to marry without love or return 'favors' for the support of married men leaves her at the mercy of her friends...but friendship is a rare commodity in the vicious circus of the New York social set.
