    ‘Clever Little Lies,’ a Throwback to 1960s Broadway

    Charles Isherwood

    October 12, 2015: Marlo Thomas headlines the new Broadway revival of Joe DiPietro’s “Clever Little Lies.” JK! That’s just kidding, for those not up on their texting abbreviations, which would probably include anyone with a remote interest in seeing this comedy-drama about infidelity and its consequences. Ms. Thomas is indeed appearing in a play by Mr. DiPietro called “Clever Little Lies,” but while it feels like a throwback to Broadway comedies of the 1960s, this is a new play, or at least it was when it was first presented, in 2013 at the George Street Playhouse in New Jersey. The play, which opened on Monday night — Off Broadway — at the Westside Theater, mostly takes place in the handsome suburban home of Ms. Thomas’s Alice and her husband, Bill, portrayed by Greg Mullavey. The couple’s son, Billy (George Merrick), and daughter-in-law, Jane (Kate Wetherhead), have been invited for coffee and drinks. From another room we occasionally hear the gurglings of their new baby.
