Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Playwright Josh Tobiessen calls it a basic formula. Comedians are funny. Politicians are funny. So he mixed them together in “Election Day,” the Tobiessen comedy now playing at the Riverside Community Players theater.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky calls the show the “artistic surprise” of the area’s season, noting that it opened quietly with no advance word.
However, he says, this is “one funny production” with its story of a group of misfits tossed together by a local election.
Sokolsky has special praise for lead performers Allana Matheis and Robert S. Ciresi Jr. and adds additional applause for Lance Todd Christiansen’s crisp direction.
