Those brand-new 2014 calendar pages are waiting for dates to be filled in. This three-play subscription by Walnut Street Theatre gives you some great evenings at the theater to look forward to well into spring. First up is Other Desert Cities, a funny and gripping new Broadway drama from the creator of TV's Brothers & Sisters and a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It takes going home for the holidays to new heights of dysfunction. The family hilarity continues with the madcap dark comedy Arsenic and Old Lace, a classic of American theatre. The Mainstage season closes with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the musical satire of 1960s big business and all it held sacred. This blockbuster musical comedy features a beloved score packed with memorable tunes. This special subscription offer lets you buy now at a huge savings, and choose the specific show dates later.

Given the fact that the tickets were free, I did not go with any expectations at all. While most of the acting was good, the play did not make sense. Very convoluted; very derivative of other, better spy stories; and amateurish writing. For example, a main character is named Josh; his name was repeated constantly, even when there was only one other person on stage. Another example of poor writing: after a major scene (don't want to give away the plot), other characters come on stage to congratulate Josh on what he had accomplished. The problem is that he had accomplished nothing. One more plot problem: the motivation and actions of the female character made no sense. Lots of passion, lots of talking, possibly some points about the author's agenda (CIA bad!) but no logic.
I'm sorry to be so negative as it was apparent that everyone was trying to pull it together. It's still interesting but I think the playwright needs to sit down and do some more work on the play.
There will be a cast talkback following the 8:00pm performances on May 25 and June 8, 2012.
