Lettice & Lovage

~Sunday~ I've been waiting a couple of weeks now to see the play Lettice & Lovage, which I saw in the early '90s on Broadway with none other than "Dowager" Maggie Smith in the starring role.

Here's a five-minute clip of her in it, doing what she does best:

After sitting through the excruciatingly long-winded welcome from the Director of University Theater, who also gave a too-long welcome at Rent when we saw that recently, I was ecstatic to find the play pretty well done for university theater.

I do think one 15-minute intermission would have sufficed instead of the two ten-minutes ones, although it was probably done that way to accommodate set changes between the acts.
