Moments in Time
by Dedalus
Tuesday, March 12, 2002
4.0
Yes, this has closed. But, since seeing it the closing performance, I still feel a need to talk about it (as if anyone could ever stop me from talking). I loved this play, but it made me feel sorry for its adult narrator. Here is a man who had a moment in time when he was 15, a moment that will forever be a peak, a wistful smile on his face his spouse could never understand. What does that say about the rest of his life? Speaking for many middle-aged men (I hope), Carolyn Cook makes us wish there had been a Madame Melville in our lives. But we are optimistic enough to believe that our moment is yet to come. Every day with my spouse is better that the previous, and there are no Madame Melville's to cloud these moments. The best is yet to come, not relegated to a distant, but wonderful memory. And this play had this sadness as a sub-text -- not specifically stated, it can still be understood in the narrator's insistence on showing himself as that 15-year-old boy, forever re-living this one moment of truest happiness. For those of you who missed this wonderful production, have no regrets -- those of us who saw it, can now only relive it as a single, epiphanic moment in time.
