Dramaworks' 'Three Tall Women' hits a high note

"You might consider Three Tall Women as a cautionary tale. Edward Albee's fictionalized account of how his mother, Frances Albee, grew from an idealistic young woman to a bitter, lonely harridan exposes her wrong turns and makes plain that the very qualities that sustain us can be our undoing. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play is being given a unflinching production under the guidance of resident director J. Barry Lewis at Palm Beach Dramaworks. Lewis' humane interpretation of the character's journey invites us to not exactly like her, but perhaps to empathize with her." "...The cast of Beth Dixon as A, Angie Radosh as B and Geneva Rae as C perform with seemingly effortless harmony. They take Albee's sharp, soul-baring dialogue firmly in hand and make it sound natural as breathing..." "...as Dramaworks' motto promises, it [Three Tall Women] will make you think and maybe chart a better course for your future self."
