Reviewer Dick Frantzreb
Review George and Charlotte Hay, fading stage actors, are doing repertory theater in Buffalo, New York in 1955, and are struggling to keep their acting company together. Out of nowhere comes an opportunity to star in a Hollywood film, and they’re desperate to prepare a good show for the director who is coming to evaluate them in one of their performances. But everything goes wrong – hilariously. This production from Sutter Street Theatre has all the elements that made this farce a success on Broadway: constant bickering that builds tension, frantic efforts that lead to comic situations – and a good dose of physical comedy. This well-experienced cast and director bring this show to life, and if you go, you can expect an evening (or afternoon) full of laughs.
