To the Editor:
It is unfortunate that the Curtain Call reviewer of “Working,” the show at the ACT theater did not appreciate the significant meaningfulness of the show. Words, like “sadly downtrodden,” and “pure sentimentality,” suggest that the reviewer did not experience the show as a reflection of the humanity and truth embodied in it.
This show, including the music, lyrics, cast, and scenery, was perfection. It told stories of real people, including local workers, who expressed the needs, hopes, and dreams of so many. The talent of the six star actor/singers was phenomenal.
This was not only entertainment, but a touching reminder of shared values and the need to care about others. J. Rochman’s review did not work for me.
