A DAZZLING EVENING IN THE THEATRE

Tyne Daly is luminous in this world premiere musical. Funny, poignant and ultimately riveting, this play captivates, moves and deeply affects. One of the most satisfying evenings my wife and I have ever spent in a theatre. Robert Forster plays Tyne Daly's husband, Franklin. But Franklin is a memory evoked only in the mind of Victoria and as the play evolves, we are forced to face the brutal realities of love and loss and the struggle to come to terms with all the realities of life.

TOUCHES THE HEART AND FUNNY BONE

This show pulls you in and reminds you we are not alone in this journey. Casting was perfect. The actors played their rolls with a loving touch for the play and the music was the icing on the production. Hats off to the musicians working this show. All pieces were played with a grace equal to the play. The cellist, Stefanie Fife, brought a wonderful richness to the score. Take tissues with you and go see this show!

CHASING MEM'RIES - PROMISING START

We saw this on a preview night, and recommend it, although it needs polishing and a tighter edit. Here's the good: wonderful, lively cast, nice chemistry, and well-written music. There is plenty of poignancy, wistful reflection, and many humorous quips. The sets and lighting are outstanding, and the sound design was spot-on... we barely missed any lines. What needs improvement? When it comes to profanity, this play conforms with most contemporary shows--it includes too much, so as to be off-putting. Less-is-more: a sprinkle of cursing can surprise, but an overabundance is achingly predictable. The run time is 90 min (no intermission), but the final 15 minutes felt redundant, maudlin, and resulted in being anti-climatic. The script is good, yet sometimes goes for the easy laughs--a trap which most conventional comedy resorts to. Our hope is that the writer/director cuts some lines, and takes more of a risk. This show might eventually go to B'way, but it deserves some fine-tuning.
