- antique furniture used in Lincoln Centre Theatre New York,
Dear Mr. Driscoll,The antique table and chairs arrived last week in perfect condition. I wanted to personally write and thank you for giving us such a reasonable price for the pieces and for arranging the shipping. The whole process was very straight forward and simple and went off without the slightest hitch. I’m just glad we had the time, which in the theatre is something we usually have little of, to plan. The furniture is used in Lincoln Centre Theatre in New York, and these pieces were used in a show called ‘A Minister’s Wife’ A MINISTER’S WIFE is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s Candida, it is set in London and is about a love triangle among a Socialist clergyman, Reverend James Morell, his wife, Candida, and Eugene Marchbanks, who, infatuated with Candida, aims to win her love.
