For a show that delves into the dangers of infidelity, the biggest gamble taken by The New Group’s production of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice is its faithfulness to its source material, the 1969 screenplay by Paul Mazursky and Larry Tucker.

A bittersweet comic take on the sexual revolution in which the suavely conventional lives of two successful young couples, all friends, are both stirred and shaken when they open their minds to the changing attitudes around them. Duncan Sheik and Jonathan Marc Sherman evoke both the confusions of the time, and the hard timeless lessons of marriage and emotional commitment, inspired by the brilliant and irreverent Oscar-nominated film.
