Thanks to the generosity of our good friends Joel and Sheila Lewis, Lyn and I had the privilege of experiencing an evening at the "theahtuh" tonight. Being a drama-type person, I'm embarrassed to say that after nearly 19 years of being in southern California, it was my/our first time to walk through the doors of South Coast Repertory. It won't be our last.
The show tonight was TAKING STEPS, a contemporary British farce. It was brilliantly funny. It reminded me a lot of some of the vintage Neil Simon plays--which makes sense since it was written in 1979 by one of Simon's contemporaries, playwright Alan Ayckbourn.
It plays through June 15, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys great writing, physical humor, amazing acting, and brilliant directing. I'd see it three or four more times if I had the opportunity. Way fun!!! Thanks Joel and Sheila!!!
