'The Fatal Weakness' Off Broadway Review: A Hopeless Romantic

'The Fatal Weakness' Off Broadway Review: A Hopeless Romantic
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

Mint Theater Company brings to light another fascinating George Kelly play with its nice revival of “The Fatal Weakness,” his 1946 comedy about an incurably romantic matron who discovers that her husband has been cheating on her.

Partly a featherweight comedy, partly an amusing psychological study, “The Fatal Weakness” is also a time capsule that holds observant upper-middle-class views on marriage, family and fidelity. If the play is not one of Kelly’s best, it remains an interesting, attractive antique from Broadway in its golden age.
