Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Lest we forget. Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky reminds us that Riverside has more than one theater.
And among them is the cozy Riverside Community Players playhouse on Mission Inn Avenue. It's quite a difference when compared with the glamorously renovated Fox on Mission Inn Avenue, but it remains up and functioning for more than 80 years.
The current attraction is Arthur Miller's "The Price," described by Sokolsky as a competent theatrical work although far from the best of Miller's plays.
Well directed by Patricia McQuillian, it is highlighted by the performances of Chris Marler and Tom Shelton portraying two middle-aged brothers disposing of their late father's possessions.
That leads to a drama that is often overpowered by its dialogue. However, Sokolsky says, its cast rises to enough occasions to provide a solid presentation.
