Rave reviews: FOOTE NOTES. Last chance to RSVP for Sunday

Our Sunday play FOOTE NOTES got a rave from the LA Times - and especially for Martha Demson, who will join us after the show.   

The Gifts of the Holidays.
Foote Notes receives a big gift from the LA Times - Critic's Pick!

"The stories are simple, but their emotion runs deep, and Paulin turns the stage into a moving sculpture, layering stories like planets in orbit. The action is framed by Richard Hoover’s stunning backdrop, a sepia-tone mural with mirage-like images of small-town life: country road, open sky, a farmhouse. The set evokes Foote’s trademark style -- you get to know his characters slowly, and invest in them without realizing it. Like Chekhov, Foote understands that heartbreak is a strange gift, passage into a new world as mysterious as the moon. " LA Times

Hughie's gifts are plentiful as well.

“Demson and Schlessinger ensure that we experience Erie’s arc, from cheerful, gravel-voiced chatterbox to lost soul desperate for validation.” - Backstage

“Andrew Schlessinger delivers a tour-de-force performance as a down-on-his-luck hustler in Hughie. Schlessinger is one terrific Erie Smith.” Recommended! -StageSceneLA
