Reviews

Directed by Luke Yankee with more focus on the comedy than the tragedy, this “Crimes” is nonetheless believable as a sordid slice of southern life. With a true-to-life scenic design by Pete Hickok, which depicts a down home kitchen sitting; fetchingly appropriate costuming by Kim DeShazo; ample lighting effects by Stacy McKenney; and crisp sound engineering by Dave Mickey, it would be a crime for avid theatergoers to miss ICT's “Crimes of the Heart.

All the family drama you can pack in a two-hour play... one scene had me tearing up for the sisters and their love for one another, the next had me fearing for one sister's life, while the next had me laughing.

Ms Henley's delightful play – sharply funny yet profoundly moving – and Mr. Yankee's fluid direction celebrate women and sisterhood, and make for a fine (and slightly mad) night at the theatre.

All the women excel in their parts, and it's a delight to see them engaging in their varied roles with Southern-accented vigor.

Meticulously directed and flawlessly cast, ICT's Crimes Of The Heart proves the perfect Southern-charming antidote to whatever ails you. It's every bit as scrumptiously satisfying as a slice of Mississippi Mud Pie.

In director Luke Yankee's hands at International City Theatre, the 1978 seriocomedy is dryly funny and engagingly but never brittly dramatic, his well-chosen actors adroitly relaying both ends of the play's emotional and tonal continuums.

This hilariously dark production is anchored by a strong cast of funny women led by Jennifer Cannon as Lenny Magrath, Robin Long as Meg Magrath and Megan Gainey as Babe Botrelle. Each is equipped with charming idiosyncrasies that carry this nostalgic production back and forth between deep, life-altering moments and funny Southern charm.
