(Pay What You Can!)
When is it wrong to love someone? Is love the highest ideal, or is kindness, and a sense of duty to each other, even greater than love? These are the questions asked by Edith Wharton in her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Set in New York in the Gilded Age, The Age of Innocence is both ravishingly romantic and heartbreakingly unsentimental. Adapted from Wharton’s novel by Oscar® and Tony® nominee Douglas McGrath (Emma, Nicholas Nickleby) and directed by Tony Award®-winning Doug Hughes (Junk, The Father on Broadway).
