Park Avenue Cat, Arts Theatre

I’m not going to devote a full review to Park Avenue Cat, because I’ve already wasted enough of my life on this poor quality comedy currently playing at the Arts Theatre (also, because I want to field test my WordPress-powered blog’s “aside” format, but that’s just the techie in me).

A good calibre of cast – Gray O’Brien, Tessa Peake-Jones, Josefina Gabrielle and Daniel Weyman – struggle with a tale of a woman who can’t seem to decide between her rich but emotionally unconnected boyfriend, or her super-rich and extremely randy ex. Would that we all had such troubles…

The bulk of the action takes place in a therapist’s office, which belies most of the play’s problems – everybody talks about their feelings at every opportunity. I know plays that are all subtext can be exhausting, but believe me, those with none at all are far worse.
