Go See Speed-the-Plow at the Gables Stage

My advice is to hurry to the Gables Stage to see Speed-The-Plow.

I saw it last weekend and I think it's one of the best productions I've ever seen in the area. It's a great David Mamet script, and the cast does a fine job of it (at least after the first five minutes which last Friday before they relaxed into it seemed worryingly stilted). Paul Tei, who despite his extensive local credits I don't think I'd seen before, plays Bobby Gould very effectively; Gregg Weiner, who I recognized from Summer Shorts, inhabits Charlie; and Amy Elane Anderson is a suitably ambiguous Karen.

The show closes Sept. 13. If you live in south Florida and like real theater, you should go.

We had such a good time that we decided to take the plunge and for the first time subscribe to the Gables Stage for an entire season's six plays. It's amazing what you can do when you don't need to worry about babysitters any more.

    I may have to check that out. It’s one of my favorite small-cast plays.
