After a one-night rendezvous in Manhattan’s West Side, Johnny, a compulsive, starry-eyed, short-order cook, is convinced he has found his life companion in Frankie, a wisecracking waitress with a past. In roars and whispers, the play makes a plea for love being worth the risk no matter how much it’s wounded you in the past. An attractive play always worth revisiting, a lovely couple of actors and live pianist will give this play everything it needs and a bit more into the bargain.
Romantic comic drama by Terrence McNally; directed by Claude A. Giroux, starring Ryan Crocker and Colleen Rae Lornie with Shawn Salsiccioli on piano.
