Bob Lieberman plays Frank, a successful businessman who has little success keeping track of his wife Fiona (Taylor Brock). As a matter of fact, he is so dense when it comes to affairs of the heart that he bungles his way through this drama like the character on the dumb end of a “who’s on first?” comedy routine. This of course makes the play into a comedy of errors as well as errant husbands and wives. His wife’s other man, Bob (Sean J. O’Neil), happens to be one of his employees. But Frank is so dense; he believes a cover up story his wife tells him about yet another married man in his employ.
With three very confused married couples running around a small stage, timing becomes a main ingredient in this comedy. Quite often two of the couples share the same on stage living quarters. Carrying on their separate dramas in such close proximity adds to the comic effect. Indeed, How the Other Half Loves is a great juggling act of comic timing that will keep you laughing.
Included in this excellent cast is Tara Blau (Teresa), Tim Hendrixson (William) and Playhouse West’s assistant artistic director L.J. Hansen. For tickets or more information call (925) 942-0300 or visit www.playhousewest.org.
