Shirley Knight was exquisite, and broke my heart. And I heard the the wonderful Carlin Glynn, a perfect Foote collaborator, had been a persuasive Lily Dale as well. Nielsen seems to have been cast to give her the stretch -- but that cahoots syndrome (spot on), a plus elsewhere -- is at odds with the naturalism. I'd love to see a different but still authentic take, say, Holly Hunter, now just the age of Lily. The play is so filled with rue and regret, and takes its time to add the layers. I haven't seen this production, but can imagine it becoming arch rather quickly with these actors.
