Everyman's `Candida' has promise

Theater review

May 23, 2006|By J. WYNN ROUSUCK | J. WYNN ROUSUCK,SUN THEATER CRITIC

In a telling speech near the end of George Bernard Shaw's Candida, the title character describes herself as her husband's wife, mother and sisters -- all in one. Deborah Hazlett handily portrays a woman capable of this multiplicity of roles in Everyman Theatre's season-ending production.

Shaw, personally, was no stranger to romantic triangles, and that is the setup he presented in this fin-de-siecle comedy. A young poet -- the latest "discovery" of a happily married clergyman -- falls in love with the minister's wife, Candida.

If you go Candida will be performed through June 25 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St. $18-$28. 410-752-2208 or everymantheatre.org
