Kneehigh's 'Brief Encounter' a playful, inventive homage

Kneehigh works its own stylized charm on 'Noël Coward's Brief Encounter' at the Wallis Annenberg Center. by Charles McNulty, LA Times Critic

 “…a playful, inventive homage...Kneehigh works it s own stylized charm on Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter…this much admired international production arrives at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills…working its charm to delightful effect... The comedy of this concessions operation is played to the hilt by the game cast ... The production, while purley theatrical, frames this tale as a cinematic adventure... If you love the movie (and what emotionally sentient human being doesn’t?), you’ll surely get a kick out of Kneehigh’s ingenious homage.”
