Engaged

Strong Reviews:
Centenary Stage Company's revival of the W.S. Gilbert comedy Engaged, opened to strong reviews on Friday, October 3, at the Centenary Theatre in Hackettstown. "Wallnau makes [Engaged] sing!" raved Star Ledger critic reviewer, Peter Filichia. "Julie Fitzpatrick... is wonderfully matter-of-fact when she announces that a woman must agree with everything the man says before they are married and a man must agree with everything the woman says after they wed," Filichia noted, also recognizing Amanda Baker in her "hilariously breathless" portrayal of Belinda Treherne.
