First Nighters Cheer "Becky Shaw"

Angela Goethals and Brian Avers in Becky Shaw
Becky Shaw Playwright Gina Gionfriddo also writes smart crime drama for television, like “Law and Order,” so it’s no surprise to find an element of mystery—as well as an unscheduled visit to the police station—in her new hit play.  The comedy about a blind date gone wrong had the audience buzzing on First Night, Friday, October 29.

And then had critics buzzing Monday morning:
  • “Briskly entertaining comedy…A scream come true.” – LA Times
  • “Causes the audence’s breath to volley between being held in anticipation and bursting forth in laughter. – OC Reader
  • “Will make you laugh.” – OC Register
