`Nightingale': some charm, but not a lot to sing about

Theater Review

That certain night, the night we met,

There was magic abroad in the air.

There were angels dining at the Ritz,

And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

So go the lyrics to the popular, 1940s-era British song that supplies the title for C.P. Taylor's World War II domestic drama, And a Nightingale Sang.

But while there are some bewitching elements in director Vincent M. Lancisi's staging, there's also a bewilderingly bothersome deficit of magic in most of this Everyman Theatre production.

If you go And a Nightingale Sang continues through April 29 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St. $20-$30. 410-752-2208 or everymantheatre.org
