Not seen in DC since Washington Stage Guild's 1988 production, "Candida" is a thrillingly theatrical love story from George Bernard Shaw.
This show closed on October 20, 2019
A preacher and a poet are both in love with the same woman. The former is her husband, the latter wants to woo her away and both are shocked by her ultimate choice and the reasons for it…A very “Pleasant Play” indeed!
(Emelie Faith) Thompson is a marvel as Candida from her first entrance...David Bryan Jackson portrays the money-hungry leaning father, Burgess, with a seasoned assurance...Cheryl Yancey's costumes bring a sumptuous flair to all.
If you enjoy Shaw done as it should be done, unfiltered, you should really make an effort to get to this Candida.
