Tazza Kitchen was perfect. Happy hour prices, additional 10% discount to play attendees and good Italian couldn't ask for more on a reasonably priced food and libations.

It’s murder out there! Start the new year off with a laugh, the mordant comedy by political and social satirist/cartoonist Jules Feiffer. Written at the peak of Sixties insanity Little Murders, focuses on the violence that encircles and engulfs a New York City family. It’s a world where the sound of gunshots is de rigueur, heavy breathers regularly call, unseen visitors knock at the door … and the Newquists are just trying to have a nice day.

Ellen Dempsey, longtime TACT Artistic Associate, is directing her seventh show for the company. The ensemble cast includes Robin Covington as Patsy and James Finley in the role of Alfred. Craig Miller plays the role of Carol, Emily Morrison plays his wife, Marjorie, and Evan Crump plays the role of their son, Kenny. Steve Lebens plays the Judge and Lt. Practice, and Bill Gordon is the Reverend Dupas.
