Jamaica Farewell Closing (Theater and Galleries) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through May 27 2012

My Big Fat Greek Wedding started out as a solo stage show about a Greek woman chasing the American dream via romance with a square-jawed Anglo. So it's little mystery why Joel Zwick, who directed the high-grossing film version of MBFGW, is now directing this solo stage show about a Jamaican woman chasing the American dream via romance with a square-jawed Anglo. Lithe, funny Debra Ehrhardt spins an autobiographical tale of growing up in Jamaica, dreaming of America, and, at age 17, meeting a handsome CIA agent stationed in Kingston (nothing creepy there) who helps her start a new life in Miami. Ehrhardt's eye for detail competes with her penchant to play for laughs, and the result is a story that strains credulity but wells with witty dialogue that'll be right at home in the movie adaptation. —Keith Griffith
