A Few Good Men, by Aaron Sorkin
A Few Good Performances Make A Few Good Men Good
Monday, June 4, 2007
4.0
I went to see this show to support a friend and give my mother a much needed night out. Not being a big fan of the movie, I didn't have very high expectations. This production pleasantly surprised me. Although the play is a little long, the performances captivate and make the time fly by.

There are many in the cast that absolutely shine. Most notable is Matthew Carter's chilling portrayal of accused Marine, Cpl. Dawson. Bill Miller played the arrogant Col. Jessup excellently with his own panache and not even a hint of mimicking Nicholson. Kristie Krabe was charmingly captivating as Lt. Cmdr. Galloway, displaying that her extensive acting experience is not wasted. Rick Thompson's Lt. JG Kaffee was played deadpan with a dry wit and it works, especially played next to Jake Cullen's hilarious comic relief as sarcastic Lt. JG Weinberg. Martin Gravely, as Capt. Ross, exuded effortless confidence. So many were wonderful, I could remark on them all, but with a cast this size I'd better not.

Do yourself a favor. Go see this show. It's an entertaining escape you won't forget.
