I had the pleasure of seeing After Miss Julie last Saturday afternoon. The cast is terrific, and the play is both well-written and well-directed. Definitely recommended.

Liev Schreiber is outstanding, as always. Michael Christofer as the attorney was excellent, as was Jessica Hecht as the wife. Also notable as a very well-paced production, with a long play done in 2 hours w/a 15 minute intermission.

Enjoying A Tomato...
had the pleasure of seeing Gary Morgensteins new play A Tomato Cant Grow in the Bronx last night at the Producers Club in Manhattan, and definitely recommend it, although it only runs through Sunday Sept 26. Carlo Fiorlettas expert direction brings out the best in the actors and keeps the play moving briskly. Donna Castellano and Bruce Levy shine as a feuding married couple who probably should have divorced 20 years earlier. Jessica Renee Russell is delightfully flustered as newly-minted real estate agent Madeline, while Simcha Borenstein, Alyson Linefsky, and Troy Dane are excellent as the equally dysfunctional next generations of the family. The plays best moments come toward its conclusion, as 25 years of anger and frustration are released - and not gently. But the story manages a hopeful note, and the audience can leave with a smile. The story takes place in 1964, but its theme of a family yearning for a house with a yard resonates today, especially as we deal with the aftermath of the real estate bubble.

Terrific dark comedy
The reviews that Ive read have all said that the cast is great, and that I agree with. But I see it as a dark comedy, NOT the grim drama that most of the reviewers wrote about. The night that we saw it, most of the audience seemed to agree with me, as there was a great deal of laughter. And the actors seemed quite pleased with that when they took their bows.
