See How They Run (and Run)

Reviewer: Derrel Emmerson



I have not attended a play in a theater-in-the-round for many years. Last night I did. I am speaking of the Atlanta area’s only permanent theater of this type. It is the Rosewater Theater at 633 Holcomb Bridge Road.



The play, “See How They Run”, was an energetic piece with lots of action and, in this case, brilliant characterizations. The audience, typical of new theater openings, was small but the response was spectacular. In fact, it was the best I have seen at any local theater featuring everything from snickers to guffaws. This was no doubt encouraged by the unusual intimacy one has with the actors in this venue.



“See How They Run” is a must see for the theater enthusiast. Everyone was funny and good and that includes: Ana Gorman, Evelyn Cummo, John Misteretta, Elizabeth Fricke, Colin Rust, Adam Johnson, Don Debord, James Beck and G. Scott Riley. Evelyn Cummo starts off the action brilliantly as Miss Skillon, a prudish spinster in town with a crush on the Reverend Toop, by inadvertently getting drunk. The farce then hits its stride with over the speed-limit action and dialogue. If you go, prepare to hold onto your seats and exercise your tickle bone.
