Production Concept and Direction: Chuck Hudson

A director less skilled and disciplined than Chuck Hudson might have encouraged excessive punching of some lines, even supported an actor’s inclination to go over the top. Not Mr. Hudson. Instead both he and the cast of four (who divvy up portraying 19 characters) respect the creative machinations of the playwright’s mind. Donna Baily-Thompson, In The Spotlight

Chuck Hudson, directing all of this, has created both comic and touching moments for his cast
to work through as they develop each small mystery. Peter Bergman, The Advocate

This endearing show is just the ticket for escaping…to a world where a kiss is not just still a kiss,
but a life changing big deal. Elyse Sommer,
