SUMMER SHORTS - Series A - The Front Row Center
The powerhouse — just right — play is this three-pack is Jack. Playwright Melissa Ross is fearless. Her two characters, George (Aaron Roman Weiner) and Maggie (Claire Karpen), inhabit the stage, each defending a section of their battle-scarred and now-ended, marital struggle. Their exchanges, ostensibly about the sudden loss of their beloved dog, Jack, are the stuff of all exchanges that men and women engage in when they have loved and lost. The fight is just below the surface; it is raw and easily summoned.
