Real life spouses Jeff Magnuson and Amy Rickett are married to the others, onstage. Both bring a wonderful, vicious childishness to their roles. Former Frankenstein's “monster” Chris Goeckel proves he CAN speak, and provoke, and spar and banter with the best of them. Cassie Little, fresh from her excellent performance in The Little Dog Laughed, brings a vulnerable sincerity that also falls victim to the viral one-upmanship and game playing.
When I first read/saw a scene from this show at the pre-season director’s workshop, I thought I wouldn’t like it; it seemed mean and petty — but in the context of the whole show, the mean pettiness not only brings laughs but also makes a statement about the “evolution” of relationships and the fragility of our egos. And it’s a lot of fun!
