Suzy and her amiable photographer husband Sam (Adam Bright) demonstrate a genuine, loving relationship in their opening scene together, but then he’s off on his business trip… We want to say, “Don’t go!". The con men move in, establishing three distinct characters. Josh Martin seems so clean-cut, helpful and friendly, we almost forget we know he’s up to no good. Micheal Phelps is imposing, and adds a note of humor, as another tricky conspirator. Spencer Perrenoud brings a squirrelly energy and menace to his double role as Harry Roat, Junior and Senior.
Kudos to new light designer Nick Eaton for artful management of tricky lighting and strategic blackouts crucial to the suspense. I also enjoyed the period costumes (Wendy Brandell) (love the plaid pants…) and furniture/props true to the 1967 era, thanks to Ray and Melody Kurtis. (My freshman roommate had that Herb Alpert Whipped Cream album…)
