Sy Rosen, veteran writer and producer, has crafted a series of hysterical stories about the joys and horrors of getting older in Hollywood where the young would eat the old if they weren’t afraid of gaining weight. He covers everything from being out of work and lying about it, to rekindling his marriage, to cryogenics, to getting his first senior discount. All of these stories are laugh out loud funny and relatable, but it’s Sy’s poignant relationship with his mom and her gallant fight against Alzheimer’s that ties the whole piece together.
The other two stars of the show, Deborah Geffner, (of “All That Jazz” and “A Chorus Line” fame,) and Robert Romanus (who starred in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,”) each play about fifteen different roles that bring the stories to life.
There’s laughs, music, turkey sex, a carousel slide projector and scattered teardrops.
