REVIEWS

Recommendations on New Play Exchange;

Yes, boys will be boys and age is just a number… two adages that fit this sweet and funny moment where Albert refuses to let time and his wife dampen his enthusiasm for holding on to his memories of being a skateboarding kid back when he was eighty. The best part is that Jack Levine isn’t mocking Albert; he’s lifting him up and taking us with him. ”-Philip MiddletonWilliams

A heartwarming, funny, and well-written short play with great roles for older actors. An upbeat play that reveals the upside of a long-term marriage. I love the way this play dispels the stereotypes about senior citizens being too over-the-hill to enjoy life. Bravo! ”-Cindi  Sansone-Braff

I’ll have what he’s having! This is a fun play that provides great roles for senior actors. We need more plays like this. ” – Kim E Ruyle
