Review:

Not all great comedy writers abandon the stage for TV and movies. This second volume of plays produced at the prestigious Humana Festival shows modern stage comedy writing at its best: crisp, bright, witty, and edgy, but with a no-nonsense commonsense core, which comes, perhaps, from their having been first produced in the Midwest, at the the Actors Theatre of Louisville, Ky. This volume includes Below the Belt by Richard Dresser, Trudy Blue by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman, Cementville by Jane Martin, The Death of Zukasky by Richard Strand, and Watermelon Rinds by Regina Taylor. Prescribe them as an antidote to the aggressive dullness, triteness, and blandness of so much TV and film comedy writing.
