"Enchanted April" (Idle Muse Theatre):  Step in to a little Enchantment, See this Show

“To those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine…and who have ever hoped, on occasion, that a little Enchantment might step in…”

Mara Kovacevic and Elizabeth MacDougald in Idle Muse Theatre's "Enchanted April" by Matthew Barber, directed by Evan Jackson. Enchantment is the word to describe this old-fashioned girls getaway.  Playwright Matthew Barber captures the essences of Elizabeth von Arnim’s novel about four women in post WWI England.  The unacquainted ladies are all drawn to the same advertisement.  They each long to rent this mysterious castle in Italy for a month.  Steered by the mystical conviction of Elizabeth MacDougald (Lottie), the women end up vacationing together.
