Steppe’s libretto to the arguable story is an interesting exam past the archetype, featuring complicated, outstanding characters that deliberately defy us to go any informal judgment upon them. His considerate drama captures the deadpan humor, refined innuendo and biting discussion that make risky Liaisons as wonderful because it is provocative.
