Waiting for Next
City Lights Theater Company
Jeffrey Lo’s Waiting for Next is nothing short of being a heart-warming love story about friendship – a story full of charm and fun while also quite capable of drawing an occasional tear through the smiles. Much of the inherent goodness of this world premiere at City Lights Theater Company comes from the fact that the playwright and the play’s two actors are themselves real-life buddies who often hang together watching a movie, who celebrate each other’s life events, and who have worked together on this play’s birthing process for several years. Add to that, the playwright and director are also long-time friends and colleagues, going back at least a dozen years. It is no wonder that there is a palpable aura of genuine liking and even of brotherly love that permeates every minute of this terrifically enjoyable evening of live theatre. Waiting for Next is a tribute to the power and joy of having a special pal in life that is written, directed, and acted by real-life pals.
