One of Neil Simon's most memorable plays, I Ought to Be in Pictures concerns struggling Los Angeles screenwriter Herbert Tucker who abandoned his family in New York 16 years earlier. His adventurous daughter Libby arrives on his doorstep convinced that he can help jump-start her film career. After dispensing guilt and demanding love, Libby convinces Herb to take another stab at parenting, accept his responsibilities and come to terms with his on-again/off-again relationship with girlfriend Steffy. This production is directed by veteran Hollywood film and television actor Robert Costanzo (Friends, NCIS, NYPD Blue). Learn More

Good acting, nice set, well-written and developed. A few too many explicit Chicago references that were unnecessary, seemed put in just to get a recognizatory laugh from the mostly older Hadassah crowd last night. Did the protagonist change? Did anything happen?
