• Performed by actors Richard Clark and Lynne McKenney Lydick, “Two to Tango” is a pair of theatrical scenes that takes the audience on a bittersweet tour of life, love and love lost. From the dark and stormy war of passion and will in the 12th century realm of England’s King Henry II, to a contemporary clash of bi-coastal emotional cultures, scenes from James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter and Neil Simon’s Visitor from New York, remind us of the strange and unexpected forms love can take and uplift us with the message that love, even bruised and broken, remains a splendid thing. This free performance takes place Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 1:15 p.m. at the Beech Street Center. Supported by a grant from the Belmont Cultural Council.
