Becky Shaw at 2econd Stage

Wow! I loved Gina Gionfriddo's new play Becky Shaw at 2econd Stage. It's damn smart and so funny. The cast is David Wilson Barnes, Emily Bergle, Annie Parisse, Thomas Sadowski and Kelly Bishop. David Wilson Barnes is brilliantly funny and Emily Bergle keeps up with him at every moment. Kelly Bishop, so witty and wisely acerbic, steals the show in the last scene. I want her to be in every play I see from now on. Peter Dubois's direction is fast and sharp. It was so fun to be in an audience again who laughed at all the same moments. I can't wait for it to be published so I read Gina's fantastic writing over and over. Becky Shaw runs through March 15th - DON'T MISS IT!
