My overall impression
I wasn’t really enthralled by the story as it is one played out over and over in Hollywood; however, I was pleasantly surprised by a few twists that changed my mind about the overall story.
The acting made this show one of the better shows in the Fringe. I wouldn’t put it in my top ten for certain, but would definitely say it is one of the plays that makes the Fringe a great event.
I was really fond of the acting of Lo. I’m not sure why she was so captivating, but she had an element of realism about her that garnered my pity. Maybe it’s because I have a disabled child and understand how his rhythms and behaviors are nothing like the rest of the family and he is just himself and everyone understands and accepts him. As you might guess, I didn’t like some of the turns of the plot.
The main reason I think I liked this play is because it smelled like an 80’s sitcom, which I loved,particularly of “One Day at a Time”. And no, it isn’t only because the lead actress had red hair.
