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.
University Theatre at N.C. State will present “Fallen Angels,” an effervescent romantic comedy by English actor and playwright Sir Noël Peirce Coward (1899-1973), on May 24-27 and 30 and June 2-3, 7, and 10 as part of TheatreFest 2012: A Knockout Season of Dueling Duos. The show will be staged in the Titmus Theatre in Frank Thompson Hall on the NCSU campus.
