Earlier in the day I went to see The Roundabout Theater Company's production of "Old Acquaintance" currently in previews at the American Airlines Theater.

It's the revival of a play that opened on Broadway in 1940, but is best known as a 1943 Warner Bros. movie starring Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins as two lifelong friends who are also rivals.

Harriet Harris takes on the flashier Hopkins role and nails it. She does this great 1940s voice and commands the stage every second she's on it.
