  • Theater Review: ‘Hay Fever’ Hits Just The Right Notes

    A classic British comedy is afoot at The Little Theatre in Newtown. Noel Coward’s Hay Fever is being delightfully played out with superb mastery of the disingenuousness and drama essential to this theater genre in which “none of us ever really means anything.” The spot-on cast of Town Players of Newtown, who is presenting this show weekends through July 18, is serving up hilarity and chaos with its playful and overly theatrical carrying on.
