The first play by Steve Martin was short and sweet, but everyone talked in monologues. The 2nd was basically a short Woody Allen film. It was funny and I liked it more than the others. The 3rd Sam Shepard play was pretty bad. When I heard it was a Sci-Fi Western I thought it would be interesting and fun. Instead it was annoying, weird, and I had to watch a guy scream and go nuts in a jock strap and cheerleader sweater. That may sound interesting, but that one act play really dragged on and I just hoped it would end. Overall I would give this theater experience 2 1/2 stars out of 5. I don't blame the actors because they did a fine job. I blame Act for choosing a lame 3rd act play. I like a lot of what they do show though and I will be back.

Nice idea to do 3 one-act plays by authors with well-known names. The problem is they are secondary works. Woody Allen's Riverside Drive is the strongest of the three plays. Chris Ensweiler's debut as Woody Allen is a challenge not quite met...continued
This show is recommended for ages 14 and older due to violence and adult language.
