Upon leaving the theater, we felt that the acting and staging of this intriguing play outshone the script. It runs without intermission and we were not bored. Babs is a challenging play -- not in its emotional depth or its edginess. Rather, one leaves wondering how the pieces fit and, if/once they do, what makes them important. Go to support a theater that does this work and doesn't "play it safe". New work is not for the faint of heart or those who gravitate to the predictable.
From 3:00 to 5:30pm, millions of viewers tune in to “Babs Gillespie on the Home Shopping Network.” With a 14k heart of gold, dangly jewelry, Babs jingle jangles like the gem that she is. But this rare bird is about to become extinct because tomorrow she is getting fired. Will our favorite On-The-Air personality survive this mid-life crisis or will she get dumped in the clearance bin with the Magi Peel Vegetable Peeler? This deliriously dark comedy sets Babs in the sale of her life as she grasps for love, happiness and sparkle.
