Adults Only Not So Adult

Adults Only Not So Adult

Adults Only

When you invite reviewers and ask to play in the big pond, you need to be ready. This year so many small companies ask to be judged in league with professionals and they are under par in so many ways.

I was asked to review the Core Artist Ensemble’s premiere of Dean Imperial’s Adults Only. This evening comprised of seven one-act comedies directed by Alex Correia, is first hindered by the seven plays that are all improbable and not funny. Those plays include  The Heart Attack, The Polish Starlet, She’s Got It, Prix Fixe, The Sleepover, Socks and The Needle Through the Arm Trick.

Adults Only is described as a collection of plays about being human, but how is it human to fight about what kind a socks someone wears? Or  having someone hit on you, as you are working a minimum wage job and then after being so obnoxious you go out with him? What I saw were situations where the people involved would have walked out, hit the other person or looked at them with that what the f*** attitude.

If that weren’t bad enough most of the actors mumble through their lines so we can not understand them. What did stand out was the direction by Ms. Correia, that was well done. Also Tiffin Borelli, Kara Dudley and Sam Gilroy stood out in a cast of nineteen actors.

Kudos to the production design team of Edward T. Morris (scenic design); Miriam Crowe (lighting design); Adam Platt (sound design), and Kayla Reed (costume design).

This show will have an audience due to it’s rather large cast and theatre school.

Adults Only: Core Artist Ensemble, TBG Theatre, 312 West 36th Street, until Feb.
