Last weekend I was able to see, Steve, a play from Boston’s Zeitgeist Stage. The show’s simple staging and cast of six makes the small theater seem even more intimate. When I arrived I didn’t know quite what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised by the witty writing, which is chalk-full of Broadway musical zingers and references.
The play centers on Steven, a former Broadway chorus boy and waiter turned stay-at-home dad, who finds his relationship on the rocks. While fingers are pointed and accusations are made, friends close to the couple become entwined in the drama. The show has several funny moments and a surprisingly touching ending that left my friend who came to the show with me a tad misty eyed.
The play runs for 100 minutes and does not have an intermission. This is a great show to see with friends and fortunately tickets remain. All shows take place here in the South End at the Plaza Black Box Theater at the Boston Center for the Arts. Performances run through March 24th Wednesday thru Sunday and are a very affordable, so go check it out and let me know what you think.
