Audience: George Parr
Last Sunday night I was able to snag a ticket to Crimson Square’s production of Donald Margulies’s Pulitzer winning “Dinner With Friends.” It’s a beautiful story examining what it is to beholden to someone and where accountability lies — to the self or other? Do we stay with someone because we said we would? Because society expects it? Or are we simply modeling our behavior after others? And what happens when our guides change course, refuting the path we all agreed to go? There is, or course, no easy answer, and in this production, under Michael Yavnieli’s superb direction, these beautiful moments of profound uncertainty come to life. The performances were masterful, and Jay Huguley’s ability to carry not just a fog, but a determination to walk through it will stay with me for some time. I highly recommend it!
