It's an excellent play. It won a Tony for best play almost 10 years ago and I saw an excellent vs in DC about 5 years ago. The writing is very good but the show is nothing without excellent actors. I wasn't sure what to expect from this little...continued

An exceptional performance, especially for community theater. The set, timing and acting and lighting were very good. Richard Isaacs did an especially fine job as narrator. All-in-all a very professional achievement.

Description

By Richard Greenberg

Directed by Matthew Randall

Produced by William D. Parker

Darren Lemming, the star center fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t.

Like a good ball game, Take Me Out offers the fans a winning combination of drama and suspense, memorable personalities (and physiques), and occasional agony alternating with bouts of exhilaration. True to Dominion Stage’s mission to remain “Anything But Predictable,” this entertaining production is the perfect opportunity to take someone out.
