A Memory of Two Mondays Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 17 2010

Eclipse Theatre wraps up its season of Arthur Miller plays with this 1955 one-act, an aching reminiscence of the author's own Depression-era experiences as a young man employed at an auto parts warehouse, surrounded by unhappy, alcoholic workers trapped in dead-end jobs. Though Miller's 75-minute script is weak--a collection of character sketches in search of a plot--it's worth seeing for the beautiful acting by Steven Fedoruk's 14-member ensemble, each of whom gives a pitch-perfect performance. Mike Winkelman's set and the lighting by Chris Corwin and Nathaniel Swift enhance the production's evocative atmosphere. --Albert Williams

Price: $15-$25
