City Lit’s “London Assurance” is an Elegant, ‘Mannered’ Play

**** Recommended **** I really enjoy well-acted period plays, especially those in which the characters offer up one witty bon mot after another, all with perfect manners.  City Lit Theater’s production of “London Assurance” fits that criteria well.  If you don’t enjoy language as much as I do, however, you might agree with my friend, Nancy, who said it just wasn’t her thing, although she did like the costumes.  3 ½ Spotlights
