Death Defying Acts -- a comedic triple bill of one-acts from writers as wildly talented as Woody Allen (Annie Hall), David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross) and Elaine May (Primary Colors) -- is certainly an auspicious way for the Saint Sebastian Players to conclude their 33rd season. From Mamet comes An Interview, in which an oblique interrogation forces a sleazy lawyer to admit some hard-to-swallow truths about his life and career. May's Hotline taps into a suicide crisis hotline conversation between an extremely angry woman and one overwhelmed counselor on her first night of work. Central Park West, from Allen, finds a wealthy woman drunkenly (and hilariously) confronting her best friend about the affair she knows she's having with her husband. A long-running off-Broadway hit, Death Defying Acts provides a wealth of laughter from some of the best writers in the biz. Learn More

Venue is warm and cozy, terrific people! The acting company is immensely talented and I enjoyed their expertise. The play, ugh! Corny, cliched, dated perhaps, and really misses its mark in several areas (i.e. the two mothers are written so closely that the "imaginary" mother really had no where to take it. The "real" mother should have been written much more passively so that the imaginary mother could actually show what the audience doesn't see in the real mother, but that the son does. The two Rick's had a similar problem...at first they imaginary Rick does what the real Rick would like to do, should do, but then that just dies and the imaginary Rick wanders around the stage directionless).
