IT’S JUST PEACHY!
A NEW PLAY IS AT STAGEWERX CALLED “PEACHES en REGALIA”
It starts out in a charming diner. Then, all of a sudden someone eats a treat called “Peaches en Regalia.” Then, it accelerates from there.
We first meet Peaches (Sarah Moser) who works at Dougs Diner. She is one of those ditzy blondes that solidify everything that can go wrong in a diner.
And the patrons of the diner? Well, they are very interesting. There is Norman (Philip Coleman). He is nerdy, and seems to be afraid of everything. Later however, he falls for “Peaches” special dish – “Peaches en Regalia."Actually, everyone falls for that “Dish” – it must have Viagra in it.
And then comes along Syd (Cooper Carlson). He’s slick as oil and handsome too boot. Carlson has that charming smarmy, seductive smile. He’s the kind of guy that is able to keep everything in proper order. Joanne (Nicole Hammersia) completes this madcap evening of mishaps. Like the rest of the players – she is a comic masterpiece.
The whole play in two acts is very clever and vibrant with infectious spunky charm. You know what – it’s a warm and fuzzy refreshing adventure. For me - it’s the funniest play this season! Must see acting!
