A production of just one play written by either Steve Martin, Woody Allen or Sam Shepard is a production worth seeing -- but all three at once is a rare opportunity not to be missed. So it goes at A Contemporary Theatre's An Evening of One Acts, featuring magic, wonder and even a little science fiction in Martin's Patter for a Floating Lady, Allen's Riverside Drive and Shepard's The Unseen Hand. Patter finds a lovesick magician pursuing romance with his aloof assistant, while Riverside portrays a confrontation between a screenwriter and the paranoid vagrant who believes he stole his idea. Finally, The Unseen Hand brings the sci-fi via a strange Western hodgepodge of loners, outlaw and aliens. Learn More

I read the play before seeing the show, and I didn't quite get it. I then went to the show hoping to glean more meaning from it seeing it live, and I still didn't quite get the show. It seems like a modern take on "Our Town" (which I haven't read or seen a production of), but with more ennui. Actors were all top notch, but with a plot that I barely cared about (even with the random absurdist zinger here and there), it was not as engaging as I hoped it would be.
