Hugh Hunter at the Chestnut Hill Local writes:
     "... director David Flagg uses lots of physical movement, including a few slapstick sequences reminiscent of Woody's Sid Caesar days ... Nancy (Julia Wise) and Bogey (Jeff Ragan) are hilarious ... we are charmed by the rhythmic cadence of their comings and goings."
 
Read what Ginger Agnew at STAGE Magazine online has to say:
  "David Flagg shows a strong hand and soft touch in his direction. ... Flagg and assistant director John Reardon use staging, costuming, props, set decoration, and music beautifully ... The set and scene crew, along with the prop, makeup and hair crews are all on top of their game ... Bringing distinct characters to life through comedy is never easy.  This ensemble cast, led by the talents of James Lewis, ... makes the journey a special one. ... Here’s looking at you, kids."




ALL THOSE WOMEN – WHAT WOULD BOGEY DO?

            Allan Felix, who has just been dumped by his wife, is desperate to connect with another woman and dreams of a really BIG romance.  Problem is, as he struggles to find an ideal partner in love, his neuroses, awkwardness, and insecurity with the opposite sex keep getting in the way.  A movie buff and professional film critic, Allan has this thing about Humphrey Bogart, embodiment of machismo, epitome of cool ... so he tries to tap into some of Bogart’s technique. As Allan muddles through real-life set-ups and let-downs, failed dates and panic attacks, Bogey indeed comes to his rescue – lurking in the shadows offering helpful pointers, zingers, words of wisdom, and ... hope.  Play It Again, Sam is an endearingly funny and keen-witted saga about love, sex, and neuroses.  One typical critical reaction: “Hilarious ... a cheerful romp. ... audaciously brilliant ...” – The New York Times.

              Woody Allen (b. Allan Stewart Konigsberg, 1935) has enjoyed renown for over five decades as consummate comedic satirist, playwright, and cinematic auteur.  During his career as writer and performer, he has created upwards of forty feature films, which have collectively garnered multiple awards and distinctions in this country and abroad.  Through his early work Allen perfected the neurotic, angst-ridden, fretful intellectual persona that has become his trademark.  Play It Again, Sam opened in New York on February 12, 1969, featuring Allen himself, along with Diane Keaton and Tony Roberts, and it ran for 453 performances. The three performers reprised their roles in the movie version in 1972.  A hit on stages on both sides of the Atlantic, Play It Again, Sam has enjoyed numerous revivals in the U.S., Great Britain and elsewhere over the decades.

            The play was produced at The Stagecrafters in June of 1979.
