THE PLAY: Even though things seem to be going well at home and work, Becky goes thru a mid-life crisis that puts it all at risk.

 

THE PRODUCTION: Fortunately, this production has Kerrigan Sullivan in the pivotal role. She maintains a pleasing personality throughout, providing most of the shows humorous moments. She’s assured and comfortable, even when she breaks the 4th wall to interact with audience members. As for the rest of the cast, the 2 young actors (Jimmy Mello & Maura Mazurowski) fare best, while the others are less natural in their characterizations. Director Ann Davis keeps the action zipping along in Act One, but just when the second act could use more momentum, the pacing falters, making the final scenes drag. The set by Lin Heath effectively does triple duty, but the overall quiet neutrals failed to make each area distinct. Running time: 2:10

 

THE POINT: The show’s strongest asset is the frantic portrayal by Kerrigan Sullivan in the title role.
