And what she and Mr. Danieley brought to the play was a sense of class. The privilege of the central couple was front and center. Wealthy, plenty of health care, multiple treatment options. And just like in real life, mental illness is devastating anyway.
This is an excellent observation. As Diana and Dan, Mazzie and Danieley really projected the image of a golden couple who would seem perfect on the surface, but who were being eaten alive by demons under the skin. And yet, they still tried to maintain the facade as much as they could. It was a really interesting and compelling choice that was different from how Ripley/Spencer and Ripley/James played it.
