T H E A T E R   R E V I E W  -  Me Too  -  Stella Adler Theater

 
        

Are you a romantic?

Believe there is someone for everyone?

If so, then Me Too is the new play to see.

   

Inspired by true events and written by Mark Goffman, Me Too revolves around hopeless romantic Andrew, who meets the girl of his dreams. However, the path to love and happiness proves to be more than he bargained for. By falling into the everyday human flaw of lying, Andrew is forced to deal with his past and learn the meaning of true love.

   

Under the direction of Zeke Rettman, Me Too is strongly supported by talented cast. Jeremy Glazer is very likeable and does not falter in the role of Andrew. Danica Mckellar is more than equal as Lucy, his love counterpart whose future is threatened to be cut short. Andrew's best friend Geoff is played by Greg Pitts, who provides the show with comedic wit and delivers excellent timing. Heidi Schooler is sympathetic as the brave Danielle, a woman whose bout with cancer mirrors Andrew's mother. Rounding out the cast are Meegan Holaway as Geoff's wife Janet, and Hardia Madden Jr, as Danielle's physician Dr. Wheelock.

  

Me Too confidently unfurls at its own pace without losing audience interest. The center stage romance between Andrew and Lucy comes off realistic and the desire for a happy ending will on the menu for any romantic in the audience. The only under developed subplot lies in the strained marriage storyline between Geoff and Janet, who in this production are performed by such strong actors the audience want to see more. But alas, this is only a two hour play.

   

Me Too delivers as a love story with top notch acting. Definitely a must see.
