Beasley's Christmas Party
Adapted from Booth Tarkington's story by C.W. Munger
Keen Company/Clurman Theatre
410 West 42nd Street, 212-279-4200

So, in its harmless way, does Beasley's Christmas Party, a Booth Tarkington story turned into a tiny seasonal treat by director Carl Forsman's Keen Company. It builds to its irresistibly charming climax on the outmoded assumptions that good and bad always stay true, with good usually coming out ahead—a notion neither Sophocles nor Craig Lucas would countenance. The acting's sometimes overly earnest, but Joseph Collins carries off the impossible title role, which involves dancing an eight-person quadrille by himself, with elegant grace.
