The Frequency of Death! -- Killing Time

Pegasus' annual black-and-white offering should pick up the pace.

Chad Cline, Ben Bryant, Kurt Kleinmann and Christopher Curtis are in tune with the broad comic tone of The Frequency of Death! at the Eisemann.

The casting of Mansur is this show's most inspired move. From the moment she tipsily careens down the stairs on her first entrance — imagine Carol Burnett as Eunice playing the pill-addled matriarch in August: Osage County and you get the idea — you can't wait to see what she'll do next. Even when she's not doing anything, she's terrific. Please, somebody, anybody (ahem, Mr. Kleinmann), write something or find something great for this lady to do. She's Auntie Mame, Follies' "Broadway Baby" and all the roles Mary Wickes ever played. Why more theaters in this town aren't clamoring for her to grace their stages — now there's a mystery.

We absolutely loved this production, the characters were so funny and the show was wonderfully entertaining for all of us. Our favorite character, by far, was Mansur, she kept us in stitches with her funny antics.....even when she was just sitting she continued to perform. We will certainly be watching for upcoming shows in which she is cast.
