Off Broadway (and sometimes Broadway) Reviews and Information.

This is one of the wonderful things about off-broadway

One of the many very interesting things that occur off-Broadway is the chance to see people you may be familiar with from TV or the movies in an intimate setting. One such chance is coming up with a show called "Voice Lessons."
It starts Laurie Metcalf from Roseanne fame and French Stewart from Third Rock From the Sun fame.

I haven't seen it, but it looks and sounds fun. I quote.
by Justin Tanner
Featuring Laurie Metcalf, French Stewart and Maile Flanagan

"Playwright Justin Tanner infuses his quirky insight and jaundiced sense of humor within the hilarious machinations of self-deluded community theater actress Ginny (Laurie Metcalf) and her catatonically despairing vocal coach Nate (French Stewart). Complicating proceedings is the intrusion of Ginny's theatre rival, Sheryl, played to the self-righteous hilt by Maile Flanagan...(The play) is unhinged." - Variety

"Laurie Metcalf gives a performance that must be seen to be believed. I sat through it and am still not sure what passed before me...Metcalf and Stewart know how to work every moment of this 60 minute show!" - L.A. Times
