Usually, it's unwise to judge a book by its cover, or a show by its title, but in the case of Oh Dad, Poor Dad ..., the show is every bit as nutty, twisted and absurd as its infamously memorable title would suggest. The first play of Pulitzer- and Tony-nominee Arthur Kopit (Wings, Indians and Nine), this "farce in three scenes" was a hit off-Broadway, on Broadway and on the silver screen in a film adaptation starring Rosalind Russell. Lots of guys think their dad is a stuffed shirt, but poor Jonathan's pop is actually stuffed, i.e. preserved and toted around in a casket by his over-bearing mother. Little wonder things get complicated when he and his mother arrive at a luxury resort with Dad, Venus flytraps and a piranha in tow. Learn More

well acted, though some performances were exemplary. Bruce Rauscher as Johnny Friendly and Christopher Herring as Charley Mallow stood out in their intensity and commitment to their roles. Noteworthy were Daniel Corey and Caitlin Shea. The " i could a been a contender" scene worked very well, tho Jack Powers seemed to be missing the necessary intensity and passion to really make it pop.
The American Century Theater will present the stage version of the 1954 movie classic about union violence and corruption on the New York docks, written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Budd Schulberg.
On the Waterfront is not recommended for audiences younger than 12.
