Accent on Youth
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.
