Nice idea to do 3 one-act plays by authors with well-known names. The problem is they are secondary works. Woody Allen's Riverside Drive is the strongest of the three plays. Chris Ensweiler's debut as Woody Allen is a challenge not quite met...continued

Three entirely different shows, each one interesting in it's own way. I can't rank them in any 1,2,3 order. Just a nice evening at the theater.

What a grand collection of plays, very funny and poignant both. Simple sets and great acting bring the plays to life; the cast all appear in multiple plays and with uniquely different characters in each. Loads of fun!

The first play by Steve Martin was fluffy, fun and entertaining. The second by Woody Allen was vintage Allen– well acted, snappy dialogue and charming. The third by Sam Sheppard was overacted and heavy handed in delivery. I thought that perhaps it...continued

Whew! We are fond-and-frequent attendees of live theater. But THIS was a first for us. Got to our excellent, near-the-front seats, only to discover a couple (perhaps in their 30s), whose body odor was so rank, so pungent, that we found our own...continued

Although it was interesting to see short pieces of work from each of these three writers, the staging was not worth the effort. The Allen piece was amusing and the best of the three. If the Shepard piece was satire, it failed to connect.

OK, so we saw this tonight.
Those of you that know me probably realize that i have an exceptional threshold for strangeness.
This well-produced, well attended, often funny always WTF show exceeded my threshold. If you want to see something totally...continued

The first play by Steve Martin was short and sweet, but everyone talked in monologues. The 2nd was basically a short Woody Allen film. It was funny and I liked it more than the others. The 3rd Sam Shepard play was pretty bad. When I heard it...continued

Steve Martin play was alright -- Woody Allen's was very funny and well-acted -- Sam Shepard's, I thought about leaving after 10 minutes and catching an earlier ferry -- I should have.

These pieces were painfully thin and the actors were muffing their lines early on. Dated, awkward, unsatisfying.
