The lives being lived cheek by jowl in a luxury Park Avenue apartment building make for a delicious comedy of manners in these artful linked stories. Carrington MacDuffie does an enchanting Angelina Samoza, the Nicaraguan socialite with only slightly crossed eyes who has a slew of Guatamalan illegals living in her maid’s room. MacDuffie’s perfect Italian accent, quite distinct from her perfect Spanish one, comes into play when Vinnie, the fired doorman, makes a fortune importing couture knockoffs from the Old Country. And Dick Sapphire’s long dead Jewish mother chimes in, as wonderfully inflected as a voice from a Woody Allen movie. Leff’s vertical slice of New York life is a stylish entertainment on the page and is even more amusing in this wonderful production. B.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
