A powerful play taking place in Midwest America. Characters on the fringe of society battle for love and being loved. The real question is about who truly needs to be saved.

A lot of Blue Surge's plot points are unfortunately predictable. However, the acting and back-and-forth quips between the characters help create the very human connection the show strives to achieve, presenting a familiar story from a different, often less-visited angle that will leave viewers rooting for the main characters no matter what.

Paul Rush sure-handedly directs his talented Sixty-six Theater Co. cast at a languid, very laid-back pacing, most appropriate for the Wisconsin town that playwright Rebecca Gilman set BLUE SURGE in. Eddie Alfano charismatically and most effectively heads the ensemble as Curt the constantly, down-on-himself cop trying to make lieutenant.

What do you do when someone you care about is in vast trouble and helping them endangers you? If you are habitually, almost painfully honest and have been trying to live a lie, what comes out of your mouth once the damn breaks? When someone hurts you, what do you say? Do you strike out? How about if someone's pain makes you deeply uncomfortable? What do you do when your life becomes one failure after another after another after another?

Intimate relationships are tricky, especially when opposites attract. It's even trickier when lovers are on opposite sides of the law. “Blue Surge” addresses a few tricky relationships—an existing one, a blossoming one, and a would-be one (if it weren't for the existing one.)

The Sixty-Six Theatre Company performs Blue Surge with the light melancholic pacing and demeanor the material calls for.
