How was your experience?
The caliber of acting has been so amazing at New Village Arts, and this production is no exception - especially with the obvious comparison to the finest in the movie version (Holly Hunter, Alfre Woodard, Tim Robbins, Mary Steenburgen). The Miss Firecracker Contest is hilarious! Carnelle's facial responses and Popeye's body language are a priceless joy to watch. Beth Henley, famous for capturing the human comedy of southern women, wrote a splendid play that lets us all laugh at what we consider our serious successes and heart-breaking failures.
