What I liked

Julia Plostnieks and Michael Lutheran were phenomenal together. Their humor and heart brought full life to this wonderful script. Sean Fitzgerald’s direction was seamless and full of simple yet ingenious staging moments. Megan Duquette and Graydon Schlichter appeared as multiple characters that were both stylistically-understated and fully present in every moment.

Michael Lutheran’s transformative performance deserves an extra mention. You made me cry. Well done, sir.

What I didn't like

I want for nothing.

My overall impression

We humans are somewhat insatiable when it comes to the two person love story (and we have all the films, novels and plays to prove it) but “Met Again” tells that story in one of the most exceptional ways I’ve ever seen. The two main character’s interact with each other from that honest place- when you’ve been with someone so long that you only speak in inside jokes, when your life together has truly become it’s own love story. But how do you convey that story to others? (Preferably, with a monstrous doorbell and a blah blah Reverend.)
