      Steve D None of the stories are worth it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 31 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Gentle British humor and intelligent, intuitive, sensitive storytelling by the great, wise W. Somerset Maugham is absolutely engrossing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Old-fashioned triple bill of slightly twee Somerset Maugham short stories, of chief interest for the scattering of British character actors like Wilfrid Hyde White, Finlay Currie and Kathleen Harrison. Nicely designed, utterly inconsequential and instantly forgotten. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Extremely well-acted follow-up to Quartet. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member 3 parts-one star apiece Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
