Another fine production at Playhouse on Park!

Just returned from the closing performance of Donald Margulies' Collected Stories at Playhouse on Park.

I really liked the play itself as well as the performances by Willi Burke and Pearl Rhein. Although I sensed a bit of line trouble by Ms. Burke, her ability to depict her character's vulnerability in Act II was especially powerful, while Ms. Rhein's character matured as the confidence in her talent grew in front of our eyes.

Yet another winning production from POP.

If you haven't seen one of the seemingly 1000 things presented there under the new management in the last few months, check out their website...and go!

Not that I have any say, but here are some things I'd like to see produced:

Bernard Kops's Playing Sinatra
Gershwin and Gershwin's Girl Crazy
Something Greek (Antigone, The Bacchae, or The Frogs)
Peter Schaffer's Black Comedy/White Lies

and, perhaps, an all-tap show with nothing but Sinatra tunes! (Who could collaborate on a thing like that?)
