Sneak Peek of Dangerous Liaisons

Dragonfly Theatre is back for their 4th production, Dangerous Liaisons. I can’t believe that I’ve actually watched all their previous shows: The Importance of Being Earnest, The Last Five Years, The Little Prince.

Dangerous Liaisons is a 1782 French novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos entitled Les Liaisons Dangereuses. It’s first adaptation for the stage in 1985 by British playwright and screenwriter, Christopher Hampton was just among the first theatre adaptations. From Stratford-upon-Avon, Dangerous Liaisons made its way to Broadway in 1987. It was turned into film in 1988, where Christopher Hampton won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. It starred John Malkovich, Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman, and Keanu Reeves.

    Thanks Lyra for a great write up. Really hope all your readers can make it to see the show and enjoy what they see. Remember, this is not a production for children – we recommend age 16 and under should be accompanied by an adult – which makes it the perfect date night out!!
