PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

This is a fresh and heartfelt play about love, time and the infinite directions in which two lives can travel. Hope and Charles are an Asian-American and Jewish-American pair of lonely twenty-somethings about to end a supremely uninteresting first date. But just as they say good night, the myriad possibilities of their futures and a life shared together come rushing to meet them. From their first kiss to their first child, from a horrible tragedy to a second chance, each moment moves with breathtaking speed. A lovely story told with theatrical flair, An Infinite Ache is a dazzling as it is insightful.

Hilarious

This was my first time seeing a production with Jack in the Black Box Theater. I was a big fan of the free wine they offer their patrons. I was really delighted with this production. Matthew Myers playing Charles literally stole the show. Man did that guy crack me up. I loved the ending gig dance and the embaressing honesty of his character which is funnier in life than trying to be funny. Lotus Huyhn playing Hope is a less flamboyant character. The playwright definetly gives the funnier lines to the character of Charles. Both actors do a believable job of aging from their mid-20s to their 70s with no make-up and simple costume changes.

The set designer does a great trick with a Mary Poppins style suitcase. I also would like to give kudos to the director Jon Tyler Owens. The script moves quickly as a lifetime passes in an hour in fifteen minutes. His choices of movement around a studio apartment and a bed scene with lights flickering on and off help time progress naturally.

I definetly recommend going to see this play. You just watch this character Charles thinking woah- that is so true, embaressing, and hilarious. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

2nd time by St. Genesius
Why yes, this was my second time seeing a production with Jack in the Black Box Theater. It was a different location and wasn't offered free wine that time, so I didn't make the connection. I'll make sure my next review says this is my third time.
