Review: A SINGLE MAN, Park Theatre
by Cindy Marcolina - Oct 22, 2022

Unfortunately, it all ends up looking like a fake play seen in a movie where the characters go to the theatre to advance the plot or reflect on life. “I cling only to now” George says at the end, but this iteration clings too much to the established reputation of the material to offer anything original.


Life is a Dream has had 1 productions including Off-Broadway which opened in 1964.
