LOCAL SHOWS WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IN 2020

THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS [American Stage; March 11 - April 5]

"Natalie Symons is a local playwright hero, and I'm waiting for that description to change from "local" to "national." She's that good. Her past works--THE BUFFALO KINGS, LARK EDEN and NAMING TRUE--show so much promise, passion, heart and ballsy quirkiness (or quirky ballsiness) that certainly connected with me. She's a major voice, and THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS, set in a Buffalo funeral home, looks like it can't miss. Featuring the beloved Matthew McGee and Allen Fitzpatrick, the latter giving one of the best performances of recent years in the Asolo Rep production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street last year."
