Quotes & Highlights

“Village Players’ production is smartly directed by Dan Taube and wonderfully acted. The large ensemble walks the tightrope between absurdity and reality with ease. We get glimpses of the pain and poignancy beneath broad, cartoonish sketch episodes.” —Wednesday Journal
“Whether or not Dan Taube is correct when he says, ‘One day people will look at Durang’s body of work and the innovation and the vision and put him in a class with American masters like O’Neill and Williams,’ this production, presented with the loyalty and reverence of a period piece, surely supports that hypothesis.” —Chicagotheaterblog.com

Description

The Marriage of Bette and Boo

by Christopher Durang

Directed by Dan Taube

As in any marriage, Bette and Boo were full of high hopes; but as the years have progressed that hope has faded. As the years go on and the marriage disintegrates, their only son Matt looks back to understand what went wrong between his parents, and what finally went right.

Featuring: Jordan Blythe, Megan Brown, Bev Coscarelli, Matt Dyson, Brian Nash, Dennis Schnell, Stephanie Sullivan, Kelli Walker, Robert Ertel, and Ben Zisk
