This past week The SpeakEasy Stage Co. production of Grand Concourse opened. The one hour and forty minute drama addresses the mysteries of faith, forgiveness and compassion in a soup kitchen in the Bronx.

Despite the heavy sounding subject matter, the four member cast have several funny lines that guarantee periodic outbursts of laughter. For those who enjoy Latin men, Alejandro Simoes who plays the character of Oscar will make you smile whenever he is on stage (mas Alejandro por favor!) While I enjoyed the four member cast, and they worked well together, it was the slightly crazy character Emma played by Ally Dawson who I followed whenever she was on stage, wondering what she might say or do next.

This is the fourth production for the SpeakEasy Stage Co. 2016/2017 season, which has had one excellent show after another. Grand Concourse closes in approximately three weeks so make plans today and purchase tickets to go see this show. It will make for a fun night out or date option.
