Eastbound Theatre, Milford: They say there’s a fine line between genius and insanity. In David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Proof,” the saying reads true for Robert. He is a mathematical genius, who suffers from mental instability. The problem is that his daughter Catherine has inherited his brilliance and is worried about the prospect of inheriting his mental problems as well. Like a perfect mathematical equation, everything falls into place at Milford’s Eastbound Theatre with solid and memorable performances.
Directed with a perfectly balanced pace and what can only be heartfelt insight by director Ann Baker, the talented cast pulls out all the stops for this winning production. Each actor so embodies his/her character that the audience cheers for all of them at curtain call. Having seen this show multiple times at various theaters, both Equity and community theaters, this is by far the best rendering of all.
