Shulman brings a light though thoughtful look at grieving, healing, and moving on, blending tender moments with comic relief in his moving script. Director Stan Mazin keeps action intimate and personal in the small space.

This story takes place within a few weeks' time, about an affable guy who happens to be grieving a devastating loss. "Champ," a nickname Richard's beloved wife dubbed him, is all stressed out. It has been a year since his wife has passed away, and he has settled into his lonely but nonetheless new pattern of going to the gym every day, then the Sandwich shop where he always gets the exact same order, brings it home and eats it as he talks to his dead wife.

Susie, or as he dubbed her, "Princess," who is not among the living anymore, although all her photos and belongings are laid out prominently in the living room, wanders about (we, the audience can actually see her) reacting silently to his dialogue.

Billed as a Dramedy, the play is cleverly written and produced by Art Shulman ("I Got Troubles;" " The Rabbi's Mission;" "Old Broads Can't Dunk;" God, Bring Me A Miracle;" "Boxcar & Eugenia,") and many more, and Directed quite proficiently by Stan Mazin(As Director: "Doubting Thomas;" "God, Bring Me A Miracle;"" The Prisoner of Second Ave.;" "Give 'Em Hell Harry;" "Stepping Out;" As choreographer: "Bells Are Ringing;" "Anything Goes;" "Festival;" "Chicago;" "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat;" "Pippin;" "Dames at Sea;" "Superstar," et al. Stan also appeared as a dancer/actor on the Carol Burnett show for a decade and his autobiography, "A Dancer in Depth," is available on Amazon.com and BN.com).

Stan Mazin directs this play that is more melodramatic that comical, although it doesn’t get overly serious. It’s also talky, meaning that there are a lot of issues noted. Those plot elements just brings the backstory up front for the audience to follow up to.

CHAMP AND HIS FOUR WOMAN is a appealing play that serves its purpose, reminding those that one is never totally gone, let alone forgotten. It also shows how life can become a wonder as well.
