The play was WONderful! I used to take acting classes at this theatre so it was nice to return. The performance of 'Beyond Therapy' was by far one of the FUNNIEST plays I have seen. The actors were great and well-cast. Goldstar is my favorite way of attending my cultural outings in the City. It is the only way I'd be able to afford going to so many. Thank you, Goldstar!!

Back by popular demand, Shelton Theater presents the dysfunctional and outrageous comedy Beyond Therapy. The play exposes the continuing American neurotic crisis that defies psychotherapy and laughs at the premise of any logical hope for standard American values, such as the current moral grandstanding in politics today. The play reminds audiences that sanity is relative and that love is something to hold onto.
Bruce and Prudence are deeply into therapy. Prudence’s macho therapist is urging her to be more assertive while Bruce’s wacky female therapist wants him to meet women by placing a personal ad. She does not fully comprehend that Bruce has a male lover who is not pleased by Bruce’s desire to date a woman: Prudence. Bruce doesn’t know how to handle poor, nervous Prudence, and Prudence doesn’t know what to make of her unpredictable new boyfriend. They do learn to live beyond therapy in this delightful off-Broadway hit that moved successfully to Broadway.
