I wouldn't want to be a parent

There is something about intimate theaters that have small, non-mobile sets, that really make me focus on the actors with more criticism than I normally would, otherwise. This show is no exception to the rule. Being a typical guy, I wasn't really all that excited about seeing an all female cast do a show about "female things". I guess it's similar to a woman not wanting to watch Saving Private Ryan. Some shows are for women, some are for men, plain and simple. Yet, here I was, seated in the Alley Stage theatre.

The show? It was hilarious, shocking, and extremely sad all together. I can't even begin to explain the quality of the acting that went into this. The key to good acting is to have the audience members actually experience the same emotion that the script intends to convey. If you can pull it off, you have won them over and could keep them interested in just about anything, even "Ghandi". Oh, don't misinterpret what I'm saying. The script content was very well written and bravo to Catherine for doing a good job. Yet, what really kept me focused, laughing, crying, and experiencing all of the emotions were the three fabulous actresses that took this show on. I had no idea that I actually sat through a 90 minute production and didn't even have an intermission. That's how "glued" to the story I was. These three actresses have outdone themselves and have certainly won me over to come see them again no matter where they perform. Excellent work ladies!!!
