Best Theatrical Production

Six Degrees of Separation at Charenton

Witnessing a great play is like mainlining adrenal fluid from a live monkey -- it launches you on a high that can last for days. Such was the rush after watching the Charenton Theater production of Six Degrees of Separation. Matching the wise and witty John Guare script with flawless acting and direction, the company showed what a small, meagerly funded theater group can achieve. Director Sarah May brought tone-perfect performances out of every member of the large cast and surpassed in many ways the very accomplished movie version of Degrees.
