PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

This hilarious comedy shows us a married couple who are art dealers. Their domestic tranquility is shattered upon the arrival of the wifeís goody-goody nerd of a sister, her uptight CPA husband and her Archetypal Jewish Mother. They are there to try to save their college student daughter from the horrors of living only for sex. The comic sparks really begin to fly when the mother hits it off with the elderly minimalist artist who is the art dealerís best client!

Excellent show by a talented cast. This engaging comedy is handled quite deftly by a talented cast. The timing and pacing is marvelous. We are transported to a trendy Eastside apartment (kudos for the set) of Barbara and David Kahn, very successful art dealers. There is trouble afoot. From the very opening line we are treated to a fast paced comedy with touching moments. Not to spoil the plot, but trouble is in the air when Barbaraís sister and brother-in-law drop by to drop some troubling news on the unsuspecting Kahns. From there the show takes of giving us a comical view of the problems facing a lot of baby boomers, what to do with aging parents. The humor is handle quite well and I think the audience will be surprised by some of the twists and turns this comedy employs.

All in all it should not be missed.

Kudzus intimate setting is perfect for this show. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
