Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
You could call it part of the Rialto Players tradition. The company has never met a comedy it didn’t like and it generally rises to any challenge that genre has put forth.
This time, however, the test is really severe. And troublesome, according to Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky.
That’s because its latest offering is Frederick Knott’s “Write Me a Murder,” an offbeat comedy/drama with a number of built in problems that include some deliberately lengthy scene changes.
And at times, Sokolsky says that burden becomes a little too much. But director Barry Wallace and his cast have managed to retain enough control to be effective most of the time.
In the process, he adds, the Players have come up with and attractive and highly capable new actress in Soo Kim who is particularly effective when she joins Sean Green in a story arc that carries a special Hitchcock touch.
