🎭👥💍Thoroughly Enjoyable Light Drama

I’m a sucker for Charles Durning, which is why I jumped on this production as soon as I saw it was being offered on Audible (even though the movie version, starring Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin, was decidedly forgettable). I’m glad I did. I’m also glad I knew the gist of the plot going into it, because if I hadn’t, I might have been put off by the supernatural element. Be forewarned: This is a modern fairy tale, not a realistic drama. But it is charming, fast-paced, funny, and often thought-provoking. The production values are terrific, and the acting first-rate, especially Durning’s performance as the old man/young woman. Grade: A
