BWW Review: ROCKET TO THE MOON Speaks to our Desire to Achieve a More Fulfilling Life, no Matter the CostBWW Review: ROCKET TO THE MOON Speaks to our Desire to Achieve a More Fulfilling Life, no Matter the Cost
by Shari Barrett - Jan 11, 2017

Although Clifford Odets forgotten masterpiece 'Rocket to the Moon' first premiered back in 1938, many of the themes of the Depression-era drama feel totally in step today with our own financial and career woes. With its central character, Ben Stark, (Jesse Steccato) is a dentist stuck in an unhappy marriage and a stagnant dental practice who longs for both more money as well as more passion and joy in his life. Things are set on a collision course with fate when he hires the beautiful, young Cleo Singer (lovely Kristin Couture) as his new receptionist. As his marriage fails and he succumbs to Cleo's flirting, will she be his proverbial rocket to the moon, thus allowing his dreams to come true? And will he be willing to change his life and take the necessary risks in order to make that happen? (more...)
