Theater review: SUMMER SHORTS 5, Series A

August 12, 2011

My review of the first program of this year’s SUMMER SHORTS festival of one-act plays at 59E59 Theaters has just been posted on CultureVulture.net. Check it out and let me know what you think. For me, the high point of the evening is Alexander Dinelaris’s “In This, Our Time,” especially the performance of Ted Koch (below, with Erin Darke) as a homicide detective who’s formed a strong emotional bond with the daughter of the rather crazy woman he’s been dating and about to dump. The low point is definitely another loathsome play by Neil LaBute called “The New Testament.” You can read my review in full here.
