Breezy fun for theater-lovers.

An Actor Retires is great fun for anyone who knows people in the theater. The angst an actor puts himself through is shown in several hilarious vignettes. All the acting in this work is first-rate, and the leading man is superbly funny. My only quibble is that this is really an one-act play, so it goes by very quickly.

Absolute perfection!!! I adore this play! Anyone who is in the arts will be able fo relate—just, spot on perfect satire captures the heartache, the vulnerability with such biting, aching truth! I cannot give this play enough stars!!!
