The show has ten scenes and 21 characters - though this LCC version only presents eight of them performed by nine actors, without intermission in about 90 minutes. It’s a great vehicle, offering an array of little showcases for an assortment of actors. This is not the first time it has been the finale of the LCC Beginning Studio Theatre Class. It was taught/directed by Andy Callis (with some help from Anna Szabo on one of the scenes, as Andy announced she was left out of the program.)
I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of these actors, particularly Danny Hogan, the personable “Writer” narrator, who bonds/chats with the audience, and also charmingly steps into the action as “the man who seduces other men’s wives.” Kyle Haggard is also very good, first in agony of a toothache and later as the husband of the seduced wife, and the father taking his son to a brothel. Bobbi Newman displays a wide range of believable characters, topped by her deranged “Defenseless Creature.” Cassidy Greene is also convincing as the ill but impassioned auditioner.
