Review

Calvin Berger

Loosely based on the story of Cyrano de Bergerac, the musical is the contemporary and hilarious story of unrequited feelings, love notes, and physical insecurity among high school seniors. Smitten with the beautiful Rosanna, Calvin is paralyzed by self-doubt due to the size of his nose. As deceptions unravel and truths are revealed, sometimes what you’re looking for is right under your nose.

Not/Now

Mr Yalacki’s very clever play recounts a reunion of sorts of a group of old-school friends from a small town somewhere in America.

The characters are excellent, the casting superb and everyone transforms what must have read as hilarious on the page into something much more than funny. He's written a depth of genuine respect and tenderness into every character.
