    Releasing the Hedonist In Repressed Women

    Ben Brantley

    April 30, 2003: The Mediterranean sun has nothing on Jayne Atkinson. In Matthew Barber's ''Enchanted April,'' the watery romantic comedy that opened last night at the Belasco Theater, it may be that ole devil sun that brings out the hedonists in a group of repressed Englishwomen vacationing in Italy. But it's Ms. Atkinson, as one of the vacationers, who produces the truly magical transformation. Whenever she's onstage, she turns a weak cup of theatrical treacle into a brimming beaker of ambrosia.
