In the first, the company toasts its enterprise in the star's suite; in the second, they crawl back to the hotel after realizing they've bombed, and there is an immense bloodletting, namecalling, rock-throwing blame session, and in the third, the reviews come in, mixed but definetly hopeful, and everyone kisses and makes up, and the whole thing starts all over again."--San Jose Mercury News, March 25, 1994

Jennet's combination of beauty and sweetness finally convinces everyone of her innocence. Thomas then reveals that his 'confession' had been a diversion to save her, and the new lovers quietly leave together."--Brewer's Theater, 1994

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

" ... a bittersweet comedy the unfolds in a tenement apartment in Brooklyn's Canarsie section in 1945, just after the end of World War II. Middle-aged Enid Pollack dreams up crackpot business schemes, trying to make ends meet while her philandering husband Max gambles away his paycheck and dodges loan sharks to whom he's deeply in debt. To make matters worse for Enid, Max has a much younger girlfriend on the side, Betty, with whom he makes vague plans to escape to Florida and begin a new life. The Pollack's sons only add to Enid's worries. Their smark-aleck younger boy Steve is a thirteen-years old whose grades in school are so bad that he even gets an "F" in personal hygiene. His older brother, the shy, stammering sixteen-year-old Paul retreats from the problems of adolescence and his fear of people into a private dream world where he becomes a world-famous magician
A lie of the mind( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The central plot idea is simplicity itself. Jake loves Beth. Beth loves Jake. But there's a slight problem. Jake, just recently out of prison, is a hothead and a wife-beater. This time in a fit of irrational jealous rage, he's nearly crushed his actress wife's skull. Her brains are scrambled. But that's OK, since Jake's mind is on a bad lie itself, skewed by agonizing guilt and uncontrollable passion. Beth recuperates with her parents in the Montana boonies. While Jake holes up at his mother's house in Southern California, his younger brother Frankie takes off to discover Beth's condition. Each family tries to keep the lovers apart. The two mothers "baby" their children in hope of restoring a status quo ante, when life was more tranquil, when love was more manageable."--A review by Bernard Weiner in the San Francisco Chronicle, October 23, 1987

Antigone( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"It is set in the aftermath of the Theban civil war. Polyneices, the son of King Oedipus and the rebel leader in the war, was amongst those killed. Creon, Oedipus's brother-in-law, now rules Thebes and refuses to allow Polyneices to be buried. Antigone, Oedipus's daughter, defies the ban but is caught and brought before the king. Although she insists that her obligation to her brother comes before her duty to the state. Creon sentences her to be buried alive. His son Haemon, who loves Antigone, pleads for her pardon and the king finally relents. She has already committed suicide, however, and Creon cannot prevent further suicides by his son and his queen. He is left shattered by sorrow and guilt."--Brewer's Theater
Opéra comique( Visual )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"As the play opens, we are in a lobby corridor of the Opera Comique in 1875 Paris, on the night 'Carmen' had its premiere. A frustrated Georges Bizet believes that his breakthrough work should have been done at the Paris Opera- since nobody takes the Opera Comique seriously- but he has to settle for what he can get. As the usher Odile tells us at the beginning, Opera Comique patrons come to engage in romantic liasons, talk business, be seen, fall asleep, whatever- but they certainly don't come for the music ... while Bizet's characters are undergoing the agonies of love and jealousy, the box patrons attending the opera are engaged in frivolous affairs and mismatched romances that just make them look ridiculous."--A review by Bernard Weiner, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov. 19?, 1986
