    Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Broadway revival of Noël Coward's Design for Living. The show is a witty, sophisticated comedy that takes a trio of decadent artists on a scintillating romp through London, Paris, and New York in search of true love in the year 1932. Otto the painter, Leo the playwright, and Gilda, the impulsive beauty who decorates interiors, are all in love?with each other. When the burden of Otto and Leo's battle for Gilda's attentions become too much for her to bear, she bows out on them both and marries a dependable art dealer. Two years later, Gilda is met by Otto and Leo who show up on her doorstep. Directed by Joe Mantello, the show stars Alan Cumming, Jennifer Ehle, and Dominic West

    A Scandal In Bohemia

    Ben Brantley

    March 16, 2001: A fatal cloud hangs over the mirthless ménage à trois that is currently sulking and brooding for your entertainment at the American Airlines Theater. Oh sure, these poor, doomed lovers occasionally do madcap things like turning somersaults or prancing around in their underwear. But you can sense that they'll never be happy, with or without one another. Soon enough -- don't you know it? -- they'll be drifting arm in arm down suicide lane.
