I knew a brief history of Double Play and was interested to see if it still held up all these years later…it does (and does wonderfully)! The acting, though energetic, wasn’t over-the-top and was brimming with nuance. The direction made the most of every clever line, made the most of the modest theater space and allowed the characters to make the most of their considerable talents without resorting to sitcom-ish schtick. Something a lesser director could fall trap to.
But the real star of the play is the play itself. There aren’t enough “Double Plays” in the world. But at least for one night at the Hollywood Fringe, I got to see a walk-off home run! THIS IS A MUSTSEE!!!
