Comediennes Lynda Clark and Sandi Sullivan Give Wings to Noël Coward’s Zany “Fallen Angels”

Listening to the verbal thrusts and parries of Sandi Sullivan and Lynda Clark as Jane and Julia — especially as their consumption of spirits loosens their tongues and skews their judgment — is reminiscent of a vintage episode of the old “I Love Lucy” television show in which Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo and Vivian Vance as Ethel Mertz accidentally imbibe an intoxicant and make fools of themselves. Sullivan and Clark likewise have TheatreFest patrons rolling in the aisles.

“Never one to copy what I have done before,” says “Lettice and Lovage” director John C. McIlwee, “I have gone out of my way to find new characteristics in Lettice Douffet and Lotte Schoen that I can play upon with such talented and individualistic actresses as JoAnne Dickinson and Lynda Clark. They are both unique performers and bring new notes to this marvelous script.”
