Beautifully tailored, luxuriantly lined in the music of Dmitri Shostakovich and irresistibly modeled on the Geary Theater stage, "The Overcoat" is the height of fashion for the new fall season. Never mind that it may be a tad early to break out the heavy winter wear. The Canadian import that opened the American Conservatory Theater's season Wednesday is a delightfully lyrical, passionate, funny, wistful and engrossing treat for all seasons.
