Critics Picks November 11

Meghan Andrews in the role of Beverly Nowak,
Andrews completely inhabits her role as the wisecracking, beer-swigging, bowling league–playing, tough girl/sibling in this sniping but supportive family. It’s as though she just stepped off a bus from Buffalo, N.Y., and took up residence onstage at The Colony.
—Dink O’Neal


Butch Klein in the role of Peter,
In an incredibly strong ensemble cast, Butch Klein makes an indelible impression as the flamboyant Peter, a character unmistakably fulfilling playwright Phillip Dawkins’s need to bring a little Nathan Lane into the proceedings. Klein overcomes all the inherent traps as a clich├ęd musical theater–obsessed queen getting dumped by his younger lover, breaking our hearts as he observes, “I deserve to be dated on purpose!”
—Travis Holder
