Why Should You See "Wit" at the Salem Theatre Company?
"Wit", now playing at Salem Theatre Company, is such a play. While the topic is hard, there is much to be admired in a story that turns down a difficult road, and helps us, at the end or along the way, realize how good our own lives are, helps us realize the interconnectedness that we all have and need.
I am hardly a theatrical critic, but I think I know a fabulous performance when I see it, and the work that Mary Niederkorn does in the key role of Dr. Vivian Bearing is amazing. Just seeing her act is worth the price of admission.
I hope you will check out this play, that the New York Times calls "The kind of theatrical experience of which legends are made." It will be there through February 12. The phone number for reservations is 978-790-8546, or you can email email@example.com. Seeing this intense production in a theater that seats only 48 people makes it even more special. Be sure you don't miss it.
As you are making your plans, please remember that we open for dinner at 5 pm in Nathaniel's and the Tavern serves straight through the day from 11 to 11, so the Hawthorne Hotel is always a great place to come for a pre-theater dinner. Nathaniel's even offers an early-bird special
