The Men of Mah Jongg, by Richard Atkins
Saw play in Scranton 2008! Now I live in Atlanta and missed it!
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
5.0
Funny thing. I attended the World Premiere of "The Men of Mah Jongg" in Scranton in 2008 and both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the production. In early 2009, my wife got a great job in Atlanta at the University, so we moved here and away from those freezing winters in Scranton. Little did we know this play would follow us, yet we didn't hear about it until after it had come and gone. I was doing some internet searching about plays I had seen in the past, and the first link that popped up were reviews for "The Men of Mah Jongg" on theaterreview.com.
I can't review this production in Georgia, but if it was anything like the World Premiere, it's a heck of a play and a virtual 5. By the other comments, people here in Atlanta enjoyed it as well. For people reading this, I found the play's website during my internet search.
Go to:

for further info on the play and where it's headed next, which I believe is LA. Scranton was an ok theatre town, but since we moved here, Atlanta seems to be chock full of great theatre! Since I'm retired and my wife isn't, I look forward to attending many a great musical or play, mostly solo I imagine!
