Pioneer Theatre Company takes film classic ‘The Philadelphia Story’ back to the stage

Stage » PTC mines the late 1930s for timeless story about a rich girl’s romantic dilemma.

< Previous Page

If "The Philadelphia Story" is about the power of anything in particular, it’s about the power of forgiveness, risk and commitment. All three may be abstract concepts, but take on fresh meaning when expressed in Barry’s luminous words of dialogue.

"You have to take huge ownership of your lines," McLemore said. "If you let language like that get ahead of you, it will take over and just turn into a kind of mush. I think I’ll be working on that skill, with this play, ’til the day we close."
