Accomplice, the comedy-thriller now at STAGEStheatre, comes from the pen of Rupert Holmes, the writer behind the Tony-winning mysteries Drood and Curtains (not to mention the soft rock standard "Escape" ("The Piña Colada Song")). With murder mysteries, it's common practice to say that "things are not what they seem," but Accomplice takes subterfuge to the extreme, offering a play-within-a-play that is deviously plotted and full of revelations. What starts out as a seemingly conventional thriller turns out to be much more complicated than simple murder. Awarded an Edgar -- the Oscar of crime literature -- by the Mystery Writers of America, Accomplice will charm and entertain, even as it keeps you rapt with excitement. David Campos directs.

FUN & NOBODY, written by Howard Korder and directed by Jeffrey Kieviet, is two connected One Acts that move from the very beginning. First Act follows two teens, Casper & Denny, on a crazy Thursday afternnoon that only ends on Friday morning. The dialogue is snappy and off-beat and Forest Orta & Adam Poynter own Korder's whacked-out, teen-angst, f-bombing dialogue, making their relationship feel real and awkward and funny and relatable. The highlight, though, is Act II, as Rick Kopp's Carl, seamlessly slides through a slow downward spiral after losing his job. I felt like a voyeaur watching him. It was deliciously uncomfortable to see how the world suddenly looked so warped and how it affected him differently than it used to when he was a working man. Pam Paulson nails it as his concerned wife, who still believes in him. She watches his breakdown with concern & support. You can feel even when they argue it's always coming from a place of love, making me believe he will get though this with her by his side... which only makes the ending that much more shocking and awesome and effing right-on. The eighties rock music is fun too.

I really liked this show. It had in it some very interesting characters and great acting. It was two different plays that had some characters in both, which was something I had not seen before and thought it really worked. It was funny, crazy...continued
