Yowza, Yowza, Yowza

The New York Times drama critic Honor Moore loves the new production of Fabrice Rozie's Transatlantic Liaisons, which opened last week at the 99-seat Harold Clurman Theater on Broadway. The play is about the real-life love affair between writers Simone de Beauvoir and Nelson Algren. The two actors in it, Elizabeth Rothan and Matthew Stephen Tompkins, performed it to great success (with the same director, John McLean) at Theatre Three three years ago. I said the chemistry between Rothan and Tompkins was "yowza," and it looks like that hasn't cooled a bit.

A good review in the Times is a boost to any play. But Variety's critic didn't like this production so much. Rothan works frequently at Dallas theaters, including the Undermain. Tompkins has done lots of good work on Fort Worth and Dallas stages. They'll be with the show in NYC through April 2. --Elaine Liner
