Meet four-year-old Lucy's imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade. He's a workaholic cocaine addict who beats his personal assistant and has a penchant for porn and sex toys. Oh, and Lucy's other "friends"? They're five-year-old Larry, who holds the record for the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey, and Sookie, her neglectful mom. Does this sound like the strangest comedy ever? It might just be. Playwright Noah Haidle's supremely dark comedy is full of "I can't believe I'm laughing at this" moments and gives both a hilarious and heartbreaking glimpse into the life of a little girl who's growing up way too fast.

I saw this play the very first preview night and liked it a lot. It is a small theater, perhaps 30-35 chairs so be prepared to get up close and personal with the actors. Of course, it was opening night and things were still not broken in yet. Someone whom I presume was the director came on stage and asked us if we had any input of how to make the show better to please voice our opinions. There are some very colorful characters in this show and you will laugh a lot. I went with a friend and she said the play made her laugh and cry. Plus, they are a non-profit theater group and a portion of their proceeds go to helping out the Progeria research group. They can only go up from here.
