Arts West has good concession offerings (some which benefit a local charity). Though the venue is surrounded by tons of great food options - including Talarico's Pizza, which has tasty 14" slices of pizza!

Very well acted, staged and lit, this play is about the birth of TV vs. acting/plays, and how it affected a family with members on opposite sides, with issues still relevant today. A must see!

My husband and I enjoyed the general gist of the play, but found the "faux" British accents very hard to understand. We missed alot of what the play was about because of this. I spoke to other people and they felt the same way.

Description

Esme is a brilliant and famous London stage actress, facing a midlife career crisis as the theater is becoming irrelevent. Her daughter, Amy, is in love with Dominic, who cares more about film and fame. Financial pressures and the changing landscape of the arts and media threaten to tear mother and daughter apart.

Spanning 18 years, from 1979 to 1997, this sharply funny, smart and timely play rips into the struggles and triumphs of mothers and daughters, financial crises, and the fight to keep art alive.

Amy’s View features Angela DiMarco (__reasons to be pretty) as Amy and Julie Jamieson (Dead Man’s Cell Phone__) as Esme.  Director Christopher Zinovitch has this to say about Amy’s View: “It’s about the importance of passion in your life.  Esme’s passion is the theater; Amy’s is love and having an open heart; Dominic is passionate about fame and being seen.  And getting all that passion into one room, forces the truth to come out in surprising ways.”   __

Amy’s View __also features Robert Hinds, MaryLou Mills, Paul Custodio and Ryan Floresca.
