PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

When Gideon Hollis spots an unconscious man lying in Copley Square just after the Boston Marathon racers have crossed the finish line, she reasons that since nice guys finish last, this must be Mr. Right. After the man revives and cannot remember who he is, Gideon tells him that they are married. Complications ensue at a furious pace in this hilarious comedy by Jack Sharkey. Directed by Lane Teilhaber.

Great Time, Great Actors, Pretty Good Script

Although definitely a comedy of not all that much substance, this show is carried off with an obvious passion for theatre by cast and crew. The notoriously small Polk Street Players stage in the Stellar Cellar was used adroitly in blocking by the director. One never felt as though the actors were forced to fit or crammed on stage. Angie Caudill's performance was indeed the epitome of her character's name, Giddy! Furthermore, she and Grant Garlinghouse pull off some of the best onstage chemistry seen in a long time. They are believable in convincing us in love at first site. The other couple, played by Bronwyn Glantzberg and Brian Twomey are at once charming and comfortable. Although they both have their onstage moments, we again totally believe they are indeed at home with each other in their relationship. Rounding out the cast is the perfect policeman played by Greg Fitzgerald. He is fun to watch and was perfectly cast in this "straight man" role to the hilarity that envelopes him. Some other fun notes to watch for include some excellent sleeping; oh, and did I mention steamy kisses? If nothing else, the extended phone conversations will leave you smiling.
