The timing and expression of talented stage actors bring this play’s subtle allegory home for better or worse, and usually better. Alan Alda plays Flanders Kittredge without self-consciousness. He is familiar with the phrasing necessary for this dramatic work whose essence relies on what the characters hear. Hunter-Gault makes a spoken metamorphosis from punk to prodigy, and his role is a difficult one that requires fooling other players and the listener. A full cast rounds out the production, and the live audience leads the way as we follow their amusement and their silences. The short play makes for a brief encounter, but the cast captures its charm and gravity for as long as it lasts. M.L.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
