But sometimes itís best to forget all that serious stuff and just enjoy the hell out of laughing your head off at some fine entertainment. Directed by Tom Blair, with a stellar cast of the Bay Areaís finest, including Will Marchetti and Thomas Lynch, Pacific Allianceís production will make you laugh until you cry. Particularly watch out for the scene titled A Defenseless Creature. In it Thomas Lynch plays a banker with a nervous condition that manifested itself into a physical ailment. Heís just hoping for a quiet day when a woman comes in to complain about her husband and life in general. The woman has a shrill voice and a piercing scream, which unravels the bankerís nerves in ways that keep the audience rolling in the isles with laughter.
The nightís entertainment includes nine stories. Most are very humorous and a few like Too Late for Happiness are quite poignant. All are a wonderful tribute to Chekhov and show both Chekhovís and Simonís knack to please an audience. What more can anyone ask?
