In the Summertime • 30-Jun-2014
I'm currently in the middle of an obsessed phase with Kate Berlant & John Early, two of the funniest/smartest young performers around. This brilliant collaboration, "Santa Monica," written by the two & directed by another new NB favorite Andrew DeYoung, finds Early & Berlant playing characters with the same face tattoo, meeting at a farmers market & sparking a passionate romance.
