SATURDAY THE 14TH presented by Know Theatre of Cincinnati through Feb. 14. Click here for more information on the production. I attended the opening afternoon performance.
Just in time for that damn Hallmark-holiday, Know Theatre of Cincinnati re-stages a popular entry from last summer’s SERIALS.
Leads Nik Pajic and Miranda McGee are very cute together and have a fun, every-man chemistry that makes them easy to root for. Rounding out the cast as “everyone else” is Chris Wesselman who tackles the multiple roles with unabashed enthusiasm and takes butt-crack humor to a whole new level.
Co-writer of the piece, Elizabeth Martin comes to Cincinnati to direct. She successfully stages the work on the existing set, with a few minor modifications, of Know’s current mainstage production. Martin and co-writer Lauren Hynek have added some new material to the piece to create a nicely-flowing, 60-minute play. Andrew Hungerford’s lighting and sound design works well to establish the various locations.
Overall, a quirky and laugh-out-loud funny, anti-romantic comedy. Perfect for the hopelessly romantics, and the hopeful ones.
My rating: 3.75 out of 5
