It's not the size that counts…


's not the size that counts…  at least not at the theater!

You can spend a great evening as I did at a very small theater such as The Actors Group Theater in Universal City and still have a wonderful time!

I was fortunate to attend the opening of Jake's Women at the 31 seat Actors Group Theater. The cozy feeling of being in someone's living room could not be duplicated at any of the larger LA area theaters. The energy was that of a time gone by; friendly patrons, an incredibly friendly and talented cast and the comfort you feel in a overstuffed couch. The intimacy is as if you become a fly on the wall as you observe the play evolve.

This was my fist visit to as The Actors Group Theater but not my last. Being that it was opening night there were a few stumbles over the lines but the overall level of talent far outshined these minor slips. I am sure that by the time you see the play there will be no dialogue glitches. This is a play with lots of dialogue. All the performers were great, everyone brought our the best in their individual characters with heartfelt strong performances. The play itself actually turns out to be a comedy with deep meaning.

Mark Arnott & Colleen McGrann (Jake & Maggie)

Jake's Women, from the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning author Neil Simon is a semi-autobiographical piece about the female relationships in his own life. Presented by Doxie 4 Productions & The Actors Repertory In association with The Actors Group.

Daydreaming is delightful, but can imaginary conversations become more satisfying than real ones? Meet Jake, a neurotic writer who is in the midst of a marital emergency when his unresolved feelings for his deceased first wife interfere with his second marriage. Jake works through his trials and tribulations by summoning the key women in his life from his imagination and seeks their help, permission and advice. The glitch is …Jake is writing their responses and creating their dialogue. Whether his interactions with these lovelies are real or fiction, the past is unraveled into a very funny, yet poignant conclusion.
