BOTTOM LINE: Melissa Ross puts her own spin on the dysfunctional family play in this engaging dramedy about three sisters.
Of Good Stock is a play written by a woman, directed by a woman, and starring three women. That shouldn't be something I would have to point out at the start of a review, but it's still rare enough on and off Broadway that it's always nice to see when it happens. Maybe one day this will be such a regular occurrence...
BOTTOM LINE: A tight ensemble and funny writing don’t quite make up for underdeveloped characters in this dramedy about a gay man still trying to find The One after his friends all get married.
BOTTOM LINE: The ways racism, sexism, homophobia, and sexual violence impact inner-city youth find expression in this timely, if somewhat predictable, look at the ways the personal and political converge in individual lives.
