Dear Alice,

“Elective Affinities” was the fall’s toughest and most unique ticket, so naturally theater-words was there. The brilliantly eerie site-specific work saw Zoe Caldwell “hosting” 30 “guests” for “teatime” at an Upper East Side townhouse, where she performed a distinctive and precise monologue by David Adjmi. Caldwell played the steely Alice Hauptmann, an old world dame dripping with wealth and class whose conversation gracefully lilted from torture and art to travel and money.

Invitations and thank you letters from Mrs. Hauptmann were part of the remarkable and immersive experience, so I thought it only natural to follow up with my own note of appreciation.


... Any thoughts?... C'mon!
