    Theater: Gerald Schoenfeld / 236 West 45th Street, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    Long before there were answering machines, there were telephone answering services in which operators would give and take messages all day. Bells Are Ringing, the Comden-Green-Styne musical, focuses on Ella Peterson, one such operator. Ella has become a fixture in the lives of her hapless clients, including playwright Jeffrey Moss, who has just broken up with his writing partner and has no confidence to continue. Ella takes up the challenge of setting Moss on a course to success. This first-ever Broadway revival stars Faith Prince and Marc Kudisch as Ella and Jeffrey, and co-stars Beth Fowler and David Garrison.

    A Chameleon With a Phone

    Ben Brantley

    April 13, 2001: Faith Prince doesn't have an arch bone in her body, God bless her. Planted at the center of the mothball-scented revival of ''Bells Are Ringing,'' which creaked open last night at the Plymouth Theater, she exhales the hopeful freshness of a newly sprung tulip.
