The Rogue Critic has posted a wonderful review of Ernie, which is playing until August 21st at the City Theatre in Detroit.
Some nice quotes from the review:
"As directed by Tony Caselli, the world-premiere production of Ernie is as contentedly simple as its title: a portrait of an unfailingly good man, who loved life and baseball, and who will not soon be forgotten…The show’s wistful charm is well ingrained in the text, but its success here is equally attributable to even-handed direction and heartfelt performances…
…in this polished, reminiscent, and emotional production cemented by an affectionate lead performance, the experience is one of a precious visit with a treasured old friend."
As a baseball fan, I had a tremendous amount of fun directing this play, and I’m so pleased that audiences are enjoying it enough to warrant the long extension.
