Shallow play in first revival in 80 years

1931 – is a one-dimensional cartoonish depiction of the unemployed during the Great Depression. Given that it wasn't a very good play to begin with when it was first staged 80 years ago, ReGroup Theatre should be commended for what it has managed to pull off in its first revival. With 13 actors playing more than 65 different roles and weaving in and out onstage, the play is not so much directed as choreographed. But it is all accomplished relatively seamlessly and Allie Mulholland, the director, deserves credit for a tough job well done. I have posted an expanded review of this play and several other Broadway, off Broadway, and off off Broadway plays on my blog www.aseatontheaisle.blogspot.com.
