Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
It’s the start of the 85th season for the Riverside Community Players. And. Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky notes, we might have expected it to open with a blockbuster.
Instead, it is with the Ron Clark comedy “4 Beekman.”
That wasn’t a bad choice, Sokolsky says. But it is neither a Shakespeare nor a Neil Simon with its story of two newlyweds moving into an apartment that once housed the young bride and her former husband. And he happens to live next door.
Sokolsky calls that an ingredient for a truly funny comedy when it is ‘handled properly.” In this case, he observes, it is a show “setting for some truly funny moments.”
And he suggest that there is a potential for more and that it might be a good idea to bring this show back again in a few seasons to further develop that potential.
