When I heard that Lyric Stage Company here in Boston was doing NICHOLAS NICKLEBY I applauded the scope. When I heard members of the company talk about it, I applauded the passion. And now that I’ve seen both parts, I applaud the production. Two parts, three hours each. Twenty-four actors playing dozens of parts. Stunning elements by Boston designers. Big and bold.
And wonderful. I was transported and sorry when it ended. I could give you specifics, but instead I encourage you to go see it. Try to see both parts. If you can’t, see at least one of them. Then we’ll talk.
