Comedy drama
Once-popular opera diva Jean Horton (Maggie Smith) creates a stir with her arrival at Beecham House, a home for retired performers. No one feels the uproar more than Reginald (Tom Courtenay), Jean's ex-husband, who still stings from her long-ago infidelity. Most of the other Beecham residents are delighted, and try to convince Jean to join them in a performance of "Rigoletto." Jean, however, knows that she is long past her prime and is reluctant to sully the memory of her once-lovely voice.

Charleston City Paper Dustin Hoffman's Quartet is charming but unoriginal It's easy to see why Dustin Hoffman would choose Quartet for his directorial debut: Ronald Harwood's script (based on his own play) is about aged performers still having relevance in a more youthful world, and the triumphs and hardships endured are all part of the process. by Dan Hudak 01/30/2013
