Accent on Youth

Default_02 Maybe it is the economy or maybe theaters are advertising more but I have seen an ad for Accent on Youth daily.  It is a MTC production where we are patrons.  I had to reschedule 2 times but we finally go made it last night.  It got pretty good reviews. 

The play is performed at the Biltmore Theater on West 47th street and that is a bonus right there.  This particular venue was renovated a few years ago and there is actually real room between you and the seat in front of you.  You can move around and stretch your legs.  What a concept. 

The production is starring David Hyde Pierce who is absolutely the star of the show.  I am not sure the show would have been as good without him.  It is a 1934 revival which is about the age old question, can a man in his early 60's find love with a woman in her late 20's. 

This particular piece revolves around a very successful absorbed playwright and his young secretary who has been adoring him in the wings for the past 3 years.  The play is funny with some clever lines.

 As Fred put it, an entertaining 2 hours and Pierce makes the show.  I couldn't have said it better myself.
