Saw "Jack & Jill" at Red Herring Theater. Produced with minimal staging and a certain amount of fourth wall-breaking monologs and costuming, the play traces a romantic relationship from start to end.
Rick Clark is Jack, who so uncomfortably makes the first move on the cynical Jill (Michelle Weiser) who he finds in a library, that I thought this play might quickly become some prescient "Me, Too!" movement story.
Theater review: Red Herring’s deft revival of ‘Jack and Jill’ probes complexities of relationships
by Michael Grossberg
Relationships aren’t easy to sustain, often have ups and downs, and can go sideways, despite the best intentions.
“Jack and Jill” persuasively probes beyond the initial meet-cute and/or meet-awkward moments of most romantic comedies to explore what can happen in a courtship, marriage and years afterward.
