A well to do psychiatrist has just discovered that her best friend is having an affair with her husband in Woody Allen’s wildly comic play, Central Park West. She has invited the friend over for a confrontation after getting thoroughly soused. Meanwhile, the husband is about to run off with a college student. Central Park West provides an hour of constant hilarity.
“A wealth of laughter.” - Newsday
“Lighter than air, an elegant diversion.” - The New York Times
Central Park West premiered in an evening of three new one-acts titled, Death Defying Acts in 1995 at Variety Arts Theatre, under the direction of Michael Blakemore.
