Assigned at Box Office
How was your experience?
The performances were fine - ranging from adequate (Remi Sandri, who had the thankless task of trying to make a boring character interesting) to good (Allison White and Susi Damilano, as a chatty awkward neighbor and an over-sexed housewife, respectively) to excellent (Patrick Jones, who wrings laughs from monosyllabic grunts) to inspired (Julia Brothers, who had me howling with her understated reactions and dead-pan delivery. She could make me guffaw simply by saying "thank you"). But the script! Why on earth they would bother with such a trifle escapes me, but the director and her cast almost make you believe the play is about something. Alas, it's NOT, and I've already forgotten virtually all of it - but it goes down well enough thanks to hard work from all involved.
