BWW Reviews: ACT's Three Quirky ONE ACTS Feels Like One Too Many in TotalBWW Reviews: ACT's Three Quirky ONE ACTS Feels Like One Too Many in Total
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(7/27/2014) - In my opinion One Act plays are an underutilized form in the theatrical world. Too short to take up an entire evening's entertainment and so they get overlooked. Thankfully ACT has chosen not to shy away from the form with their current offering, "An Evening of One Acts" and has even chosen works by some iconic American authors. And while the evening was loaded with quirky fun, two of the one acts felt as if they could have ended a few times over and ran a bit long.
