Theater Review: “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”

A. Schaar in “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”

Ah, those French. Famous for making love a national obsession, their reputation for artful seduction persists even today.

Back in the pre-French Revolutionary 18th century, Pierre Choderlos de Laclos posited a game which would use seduction as the bait for debauchery, revenge and cruelty, and would serve to amuse the idle rich. His novel was called “Les Liaisons Dangereuses.”
