"...It's not all techwizardry, however. The synchronicity achieved by actors after decades of experience swapping dialogue with one another, in a Rogers Park auditorium barely bigger than the "personal closets" ( "bedrooms" to us ) they now occupy, ensures a brisk pace and an intimacy enhanced by the close-up eye contact facilitated by the "asides" incorporated into Calvit's text. When Samantha Newcomb's irrepressible Lizzy asks us what we think of the latest contretemps, it's all we can do not to reply-though if you're watching from your sofa, feel free to roast the aloof Mister Darcy's well-begun but ill-concluded marriage proposal, delivered by Andres Enriquez with affecting aplomb."
