A Round-Heeled Woman
The Edge Theatre: 4/18 – 5/18
A woman named Jane feels she has been celibate way too long and puts an ad into the paper which says: “Before I turn 67 – next March- I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like.” As a result she receives dozens of replies. The play, written by Jane Prowse has been adapted from the book by Jane Juska. Eric Rohmer’s film “Autumn Tale” inspired the book.
The sensibility and sensitivity of the sage and seasoned Rohmer, who is a renowned French director, is the key energy that is sadly missing from this production about reality therapy and sexy seniors.
Director Scott Bellot has done well in the pacing of the piece. He’s even done well overseeing the technical aspects of the show. The scenic design by Justin Lane is full of images of clocks and the gears thereof that resonate with the script's awareness of the ticking of Jane’s biological clock. However … as portrayed by Ms. Cleveland this lady is an attractive, well put-together woman who could find a man at any party or social gathering. Ms. Cleveland’s portrayal of the central character is charming, engaging and utterly delightful. So are the performances of Suzanna Wellens and Deb Hultgren who provide her with an on again off again support system throughout.
The show is recommended for mature audiences because of strong sexual content and language.Marlowe's Musings
