BWW Reviews: Geffen Presents a Riveting GOOD PEOPLE
The cast is fabulous. Kaczmarek nails Margie down to her toes without a false move. Tenney makes Mike as likable as you can make a guy with a glass veneer, whose obvious hypocrisy shows right through. Burke and Botsford are thoroughly believable as well as hilarious as Dottie and Jean. Boothe is genuine and caring as Kate, who must pay for stretching herself too far, and Fleischer makes Stevie a 'mystery' man. Shakman's direction is impeccable and Craig Siebels' multiple sets hit the mark.
Good People is so well written and executed! It has the very best of both worlds: it makes us painfully aware of our faults as it entertains the hell out of us. Great theatre!
