A Touching Story
by John Q. Theatregoer
Sunday, February 18, 2001
4.0
Not the best thing you've ever seen at the Alliance, this play is still certainly worth the price of admission. Holtzman's story takes a close look at the life of an average World War II veteran and shows (through flashback) the onset of wartime emotional stress that he is now froced to confront. The ensemble is so succesful at creating a compelling, and honest "build" to the action, that it is a little dissapointing when the energy dissipates during the truly climactic moments. But all in all, a very touching evening of theatre. It is worth noting one breakthrough performance: Jessie Andary as the Austrian Shock-Therapist. That alone is worth the trip to the Arts Center. Go check this one out before it closes! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
