It s done in the quietly manic British manner slyly suggestive and casually witty and passes the time Well enough to be called amusing but not Well enough to be much More than just Worth the Effort. Miranda of the title is a Mermaid Only half human. In Betty Franz a hands she becomes something super human a fascinating Nymph woman with the Only real grasp of life a possibilities to be seen. The temptation is Strong on viewing this mediocre piece of lukewarm drama to wire Miranda wherever she is to come at once via the Hudson and Batten kill to a charming Vermont Quarry full of delicious Trout and Well populated by a vast assortment of people ready willing and Able to appreciate her unique Irres stability. Those Stuffy britishers squabbling Over the invasion of their Petty private morality Are hardly the proper introduction to humanity for a free swimming soul from one of the seven seas. A number of familiar car Avaner and three new additions to the company struggle manfully and woman fully with the current of a sluggish dialogue but the effect is Flat and there is a sigh of Relief when Miranda escapes Over a Handy embankment into the thames. Susan Kaslow is outstanding As the maid Barry Dunleavey of the sly worried look and gravely voice first rate As the Butler. Fred and Patricia Carmichael each contribute believable ii unexciting characterizations. Dor Othy Lancaster As the woman upstairs has a carefully controlled abandon and a Fine flair for the comic moment. Judith Booth As lady Marten carries almost the entire weight of the evening with Assurance and conviction especially noteworthy As the lines she is permitted to say have about As much imaginative writing per hour As a first Grade Reader. Tony Alyward As the artist Bachelor has a Fine naturalness and contagious by humorous Grin. What even the Best actors could do with scenes of such minuscule importance is debatable so Why worry. Relax and enjoy a pleasant two hours. Miss Franz almost makes it All seem worthwhile. Anthony Dingman directed As Well As anyone could and j. P. Murray created a simple colourful not unimaginative set. Patric Iozzo stage managed the show. Just follow the Atlantic Cable Miranda and done to worry about our Long cold Winters.
