NOTE: From 20 June to 6 August 2005 the role of CK Dexter Haven will be played by Adrian Lukis. Lukis is relaxed and charming in the role as the ex-husband, who clearly still has feelings for his former wife.

I was really glad that I got to see this production before it ended! I don't understand the mixed reviews. Granting the plotline is somewhat dated but I think it still is a very funny and well made production. Kevin Spacey is charming and witty. Julia Mckenzie is a gem.

It ends tomorrow Sept 2...try to catch it!...
