Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

I love this play! Actors Theatre has, once again, produced a solid interpretation of a classic play. There was great attention to detail in the set design and lighting. For me, the most developed characters where Claire (Rachel Klyce), Julia (Jessica Risco) and Harry (Randy Hurst). I enjoyed watching them because they made their characters real...I could imagine myself joining the characters on stage for cocktails and chatting. It was unfortunate that the actress who played Edna seemed to be saying her lines as if she were reading from a script for the first time and the actress who played Agnes was hard to understand. I was not sure what she was saying...it was as if she had all of the classic dialogue memorized and then couldn't get it out of her mouth fast enough...I could not really get a sense of her character. Christian Phillips who played Tobias was good. Then, one-by-one, Claire, Julia and Harry arrived on the scene and the play unfolded into the award-winning drama that it was intended to be. I do want to see this again and recommend it highly.
