There was excellent acting by the entire cast. We felt like we were eavesdropping on real people, with all the (very challenging to memorize) overlapping arguments and believable characters. Sad that this is Jack Dowd's last show in Lansing before he and Emma move to the Portland Oregon area. His impressive stage presence will be sorely missed.Heather Lewis, Joe Dickson, Shannon Bowen and Scott Laban also shone in their double roles. Jenise Cook and Jerry Parker embodied the change in African American roles over the half century, and Devin Faught added a poignant note in his small role. Director Blake Bowen can be rightly proud of this cast.
Since I was "at the convent" last weekend in Nunsense, I saw this show a little late. Only ONE MORE SHOW, tomorrow, Saturday night at 8. Head south to Peppermint Creek for a thought-provoking evening of fine acting.
