She is a competent, if not always confident, music teacher, ready to leap into stardom. He is an intelligent, if uneducated, construction worker determined to work on his constitution. Neither is looking for romance, let alone love. DISAPPEARING ACTS presents a fresh, insightful look at the many stages of a modern relationship. Marjorie Johnson and Marc Damon Johnson read alternating chapters, each giving a compelling performance. Marjorie Johnson's Zora, although she grew up in Toledo, flavors her speech with a strong touch of Brooklyn spice. Marc Damon Johnson's Franklin can be drunk, angry and loving, all in the same chapter. His interpretations of Franklin's friends and family are so distinct as to sound like entirely different readers. Skillful writing and sensitive performing of this work leave the listener sad to hear the story end. R.P.L. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
