Chicago on Stage – Top 10 Performances of 2017

Friday, January 5, 6:03 PM written by AFT Theatre

Alex Weisman, in this play, was so sweet and so moving that you wanted to reach out from your seat and hug him. When his character, Jordan, experienced brief happiness, Weisman’s eyes lit up brighter than the disco ball used for the wedding receptions and his face became one giant smile. And when his pent-up frustration escaped, he let that show, too, with every element of his being, his entire body a masterpiece of tension and pain. The play opened the day after Weisman won a Jeff Award; his performance here made it easy to see why.

Performance’s worth mentioning:

Amanda Drinkall (Laura, Significant Other, About Face and Theatre Wit)
