We just got back. By far the best play was The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess. It is a fiery two-hander about race that unfolds between an African American student and her white professor. Reminded me of Mamet's Oleanna in some ways, although, of course, that play dealt with sexual exploitation. The Niceties was wonderfully acted by Robin Walsh and Margaret Ivey. This world premiere is already good enough to likely get produced at one of the NY non-profits (probably with one or two stars, despite the great performances here, as there are two very juicy parts). With its two person cast it likely will popular at non-profits across the country. I saw all six shows this weekend. If you want to know more, email me.
