City Lights Theater Company
|Luisa Sermol & Ben Euphrat|
“Do you think there is only person out there for us?” is a question Ethan is struggling to answer in his life. When he shows up to ask Alice’s parents for her hand in marriage, he is sure that the answer is ‘yes’ and that she is the one. The problem is that Ethan and Alice broke up two years prior and have not spoken since. Further, Alice is now close to being engaged to Nelson.
In Michael Mitnick’s 2017-premiering play, The Siegel, Ethan is not about to give up, setting up a possible love triangle that rivals those in the play’s namesake-of-sorts, Chekov’s The Seagull; but this modern version is packed with tons more laughs. Now in a popcorn-paced, fun and funny, smartly designed and directed production at City Lights Theater Company, The Siegel is more Woody Allen than Chekov and a rowdy romp in the search for love where paths meet, collide, and eventually turn around corners unexpected.
