A fun show!

I didn't know anything about this show in advance, but Social Security turned out to be a very fun comedy. Of course, with Kim Salome in the cast it was bound to be good!

The set was quite nice (except for that bar, same one used in Virginia Wolfe, and I hated it there too). But overall, the set was spot-on for a mid-80's urban loft. Well done. As said, Kim Salome is in her element in comedy, playing the sophisticated urban art dealer. Shelly Barnett is also quite good as her opposite straight-laced stay-at-home empty nester. The guys really have to work to keep up with the ladies, and I mean that in a kind way. I wish the roles for Bill Hajdu and Bobbie Elzey had more stage time.

There have been some big hits, and some misses, at Onstage in the last few seasons, but anyone who enjoys a light comedy will really like Social Security. I certainly recommend it.
