by Kaufman & Hart
My whole life I thought this was a musical. I think it was the two names that threw me off. I loved this play - so funny and quirky and just asking to be done at every regional theatre (if it hasn't already).. the age-old themes of acceptance and overcoming snap judgements are on full display here. I mean, yes the Sycamore family is crazy, but that's why we love them - they are our own families to the extreme, they are US to the extreme. Give me fireworks and snakes and "toe-dancing" any day!
Nothing too profound to say here, just that it was thoroughly enjoyable and I would love to work on it!
