A Certain Type of Charm

Kathleen Cahill's dreamy comedy, Charm, gets a sweet production at Kitchen Dog Theater. Tina Parker stars as Margaret Fuller, a real-life early feminist writer whose pals included Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. The boys won't let her swim in Walden Pond (back in that century, ladies didn't do such things), so Margaret makes her splash as one of the first professional women journalists for an American publication. What happens to her when she finally finds love with a sexy Italian count (Brian Witkowicz) is the end of a poignant story. Directed by Christopher Carlos, this 90-minute play, full of whimsy and romance, is one of the highlights of the holiday theater season thus far. Through December 11 at Kitchen Dog Theater, McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 3120 McKinney Ave. 214-953-1055. Reviewed November 18. (E.L.)
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Wed., Dec. 8, 8 p.m. Starts: Nov. 12. Continues through Dec. 11, 2010
