Quotes & Highlights

“Lisa Lennox and Chris Zezza are delightful as the romantic couple. They have good chemistry together.” —
“Lewis Graham does a great job of turning the lecherous, misogynist role of Dr. Framingham into a real oddball, sporting a horrible belt buckle and sputtering about his questionable virility.”


Shelton Theater proudly presents Beyond Therapy a play the LA Times referred to as “wickedly funny, terribly slanted, and essentially true.” It’s written by Christopher Durang a man considered to be one of the funniest, most original playwrights in the country and it’s directed by Jean Shelton who is among San Francisco’s most acclaimed interpreters of contemporary work.

In short, the show exposes the continuing American neurotic crisis that seems to defy psychotherapy and sadly provides little promise in terms of hope for the future.

Particularly relevant, given America’s current cultural and political divide over the subject of values, Beyond Therapy, according to Gerald Clarke of Time Magazine does, “offer us the best therapy of all: guaranteed laughter.”
