It is a somewhat intriguing piece. Story isn't new; we all have seen it somewhere before. I liked the overall pace and how it ended. However, I do believe the actors need more rehearsing. Except for Kelly O'Sullivan (in a very small and pivotal role), almost everyone stumbled on words/lines. In addition, Coach Shea's character wasn't developed well -- his true motive (vengeful mind) wasn't quite clear. As the lead, Stephen Louis Grush was uncharismatic. His counterpart, Tim Rock, fared a bit better. Hopefully, a nicer and more capable cast will be featured in the NYC incarnation in April '08.
Steppenwolf Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Good Boys and True by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Pam MacKinnon. The production features ensemble member Martha Lavey with Stephen Louis Grush, Nick Horst, Mark Minton, Kelly O’Sullivan, John Procaccino, Tim Rock and Kelli Simpkins.
Brandon Hardy is brilliant, athletic and charming, the kind of young man that makes St. Joe’s Preparatory School proud. When the Ivy League-bound senior becomes the center of a scandal that threatens to destroy his future, his mother must sort fact from fiction.
Playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama. His plays include Based on a Totally True Story, Dark Matters and Say You Love Satan. He is also known for his work on the Marvel comic books Fantastic Four and The Sensational Spider-Man.
