Through June 23: "Same Time, Next Year"

Olympia Little Theater

By Christian Carvajal on June 6, 2013

Olympia Little Theater's production of Same Time, Next Year stars Jeff Hirschberg and Rebecca Lea McCarthy. Director James Patrick cast mature actors and let the script catch up with them. This presents Hirschberg and McCarthy with the challenge of acting 25 while looking, well, not 25, and they approach this largely by playing speed and insecurity. They seem more comfortable in Act II, which finds them with teenage children and passionless marriages in the chaotic '60s and '70s. They're aided by Allison Gerst's colorful costumes, which serve to emphasize the characters' personalities as they evolve over time.
