Dan Soloman writes “Varenhorst’s performance is the finest on an Austin stage so far this year, and Jemison’s brings a resigned longing to a part that had the potential to be little more than the Hooker With A Heart of Gold stereotype straight out of a 1940s Hollywood studio picture.” He also tackles the questions raised by the play itself in a way that is entirely fair. I think I’m going to email him and tell him about how the play used to end, before Press-Coffman altered and republished it. I would share that with you, but then, there’d be spoilers and distractions. Ask me next Saturday and I’ll tell you everything.
Show tonight at 9 pm sharp. See you there.
