Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award
In their Harlem mansion, during the early years of the twentieth century, the Collyer brothers share an eccentric life, still within reason. Langley is a concert pianist by profession but prefers his studies of the world's minutiae, all of which he considers collectible. His older brother, Homer, a former admiralty lawyer and aspiring intrigant, maintains the household and dreams of wilder times. These seem about to begin when the beautiful socialite Milly inserts herself into the Collyer ménage, bringing with her money, secrets and designs on Langley. As the first act unfolds, a wedding is strategized; as it ends, the wedding is aborted. In the second act, the Collyers and Milly are reunited under vastly altered conditions. Time passes, then destroys them, one by one.
Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award. "…lively, brilliant, witty and sad—by far Greenberg's best and the gem of the season…" —NY Post. "…blending the existential landscape of Waiting for Godot with the acid wit of Noel Coward, THE DAZZLE lives up to its name." —Time Out NY. "…fascinating…daring originality…" —NY Times. "…odd and irresistible…" —NY Newsday.
