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

Another one of Miller's masterpieces. Reasonably good staging and the acting was, for the most part, quite good. Occasional mis-lines, and one or two actors were a bit stiff....but all in all, a fine production of a play that is not easy to do. Strongly recommended.
All My Sons, the first great success of Arthur Miller’s supremely influential career, is a compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. Joe Keller (Randy Hurst) is alleged to have supplied World War II fighter planes with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots – a crime for which his business partner took the fall. One of Keller’s sons, himself a pilot, is thought to have been killed in action. But his mother (Joyce Henderson) can’t accept his death and equally, can’t accept that her dead son’s fiancée has transferred her affections to her other son. The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a shameful family secret.
