Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
The play is “The Good Doctor,” Neil Simon’s most unusual comedy. And It opens Dec. 10 at he Rialto Playhouse, home of the Rialto Community Players
But Players president Sandy Courtney says this is not one of their productions. It is being staged by the Cycrobox Theater Group, a company of young performers who have had the theater handed over to them
And Cycrobox director Cameron Harris tells Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky he selected this work because it can be done with an almost bare set and five actors.
Danielle Erbe says she is playing an over eager young dentist in the production. She later returns to portray an older woman seeking love with a younger man.
Such a blend, she adds, makes this work “very comedic and very tragic.”
