In Noel Coward’s play “Fallen Angels,” no one has to worry about the maid stealing the silverware. But they should worry about her stealing the show. As past productions of the slight comedy have indicated, that role is ripe for such theatrical larceny.

In the play, two married women who had past relations with the same guy anticipate the return of their former beau while their husbands are out on a golfing excursion. For years, the play didn’t seem to have the cache of Coward’s “Private Lives” or “Hay Fever,” but it has seen a spate of recent revivals, including this one at the IRT. Details here

There’s even more Noel Coward in store for those who catch “A Coward Cabaret” featuring Steven Stolen in an intimate concert at the IRT. Details here.
