Laughter on the 23rd Floor—HART Theatre—Hillsboro, OR

 

The Endorphin Squad

    This live production of the comedy by the famous Broadway writer, Neil Simon, is directed by Meghan Daaboul.  It is playing at their space near downtown Hillsboro, 185 SE Washington, through May 22nd.  For more information, go to their website at www.hart-theatre.org or call 503-693-7815.

    Ah, the good ole days of the 50’s.  Peace, once again, except, of course, for the Cold War with Russia, and the Korean Conflict.  Yes, prosperity loomed just around the corner, unless, of course, you were a subject of one of Joe McCarthy’s investigations of “Commies” and ended up on the Black List.  But the saving grace through it all was television, and its comedy/variety shows, like the classic, Sid Caesar and his, Your Show of Shows.

    Many of the present-day comedians, directors, producers and actors wrote for this show, including “Doc” Simon.  Some names that come to mind are Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Dick Cavett, Howard Morris, Imogene Coca and a plethora of others.  All in all, although it may not have been “the best of times,” it did produce some the best of talent!

    The plot centers around a gaggle of TV comedy writers on one of the upper floors of a high-rise building in the mid-50’sin New York City.  There is the star of the show, the eccentric, Max Prince (Bobby Jackson), who genuinely loves the biz but is thwarted at every turn by corporate (executives (nothing much has changed in that regard nowadays).

    And among his “mad” team (“everybody must have a little madness to discover one’s true passion”), is the head writer, a Russian Jew, Val (Jeff Brosy), who tries to be the peacekeeper (without much success) of this motley crew.  And then there is Milt (Steven Koeppen), the beret king, who likes to be set apart from the group; Brian (Seth Wayne), who’s an aspiring screenwriter; Kenny (Jeff Ekdahl), the apple-cheeked kid, and Ira (Michael Rouches), the hypochondriac.

    Add to this mix the only female writer of the bunch, Carol (Erin Bickler), who just wants to be “one of the guys;” Helen (Deb Holmes, Max’s secretary, who wishes to be a writer herself; and the newbie, Lucas (Brandon B. Weaver), who is the storyteller (perhaps, Simon, himself?).  As is said, everyone has his/her own story and such is the case here, but for an audience to discover when watching the play.

    Daaboul has assembled a fine ensemble cast and they play beautifully off each other.  A tricky thing for a director, when doing this sort of show, is the motivated blocking (as in Twelve Angry Men), where the center piece are the writer’s tables, and to move the actors around in a meaningful way is no easy task but she pulls it off, so kudos to her!

I recommend this show.  If you do see it, please tell them Dennis sent you.

  1. I am here to give my testimony about a Herbal Doctor called Dr Williams who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2017, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay.So One day I went online on the internet to know more cure about the Herpes Simplex Virus i came across a review of a man called Davidson saying that he got his Herpes Simplex Virus cured by a herbal Called Dr Williams. And he also went as far to drop an email address: dr Williams cure @ gmail. com and advise anyone to contact Dr Williams for any kind of help. So i gave a try by contacting him through his email address and explain my problem to him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 21 days the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like HERPES, HIV, HEPATITIS B/HEPATITIS C, TUBERCULOSIS, COPD,low sperm count, or bringing back your ex lover, this great man is extremely the best in which I have seen and applauds and if you also need a help, here again he his email address: drwilliamscure@gmail.com, or Whatapp + 2347040461868, Website: https://drwilliamscure.wixsite.com/herbalhome

  11. I had my first outbreak of Herpes virus nearly 2 years ago. Of all the horridness, the pain and itching were unbearable. I literally freaked out as my general physician said that it had no cure. The outbreaks were not that frequent initially, but every time I fall sick, it would resurface. I had so many sores this year that I was desperate to try anything to get rid of them. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try Dr Harry remedy that's helping people get cured from HSV, COUGHING, HIV&AIDS, GENITAL HERPES, SNEEZING, HEPATITIS B, CANCER e.t.c. I quickly ordered the product and started using the remedies. I'm so relieved to say that I've not had even one outbreak for a whole month now. Moreover, I'm feeling great from within. I truly endorse this herbal product Dr Harry rendered to me. So if you are suffering from any deadly disease you can also contact this great man on his

  14. I am amazed by Dr Abiola Efe remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes I average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Dr Abiola Efe here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Dr Abiola Efe remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too. Email: My WhatsApp number+2348100609098

  15. Grateful to DR. KHAM for all his help for my life, i was having Herpes Simplex Virus, and we were planning on getting married on early December, when positive, My fiancé was so unhappy, because this was a barrier for us to get married, So i went out to search out a remedy for my partner, and it was so surprising how DR. KHAM has been a blessing and healing to the masses, after reading about his work on a blog, I immediately emailed ( dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com ) and he wrote back to me that my fiancé will be OK and that we we get married this same year, i couldn't believe it, after doing all that is needed to be done, i was surprised that after 2weeks of using his medicine my fiancé went to the doc and was diagnose negative.

  16. Honestly When I found out I had herpes virous, I was completely lost because I didn't know what to do and I worried about how the incident would affect my relationship. I couldn't go about it but positive thinking and a healthy approach keeps me going. I tried finding help in all possible area but my efforts were to no avail. But with the help of DR Harry , I discussed the issue with him and I was treated so after some times I went back for another test which came out NEGATIVE and I was totally healed with no side effects . And you can reach out to DR Harry he's helpful.

  17. Just like you! I read about herpes cure and herbalist on the internet, like you I had my doubts and was skeptical but unlike many I decided to place my destiny in my own hands by going further to contact and follow his instructions. This is not a testimony but the words of one who has felt the pains of being infected and affected with genital Herpes virus and got cured using natural roots and herbs after being in pain and abandoned for 7 years. I am a witness today that herbal medication can cure genital herpes. you should contact Doctor Excel by visiting his website Excelherbalcure.com

  19. Has anyone ever tried MULTIVITAMIN HERBAL CURE for herpes simplex? I have had cold sores since I was a child. I used to have them one after the other. One would heal and another would be right behind it. When I got married, I started using this herbal remedies and chanced on these two. It took a while but I persisted taking these natural herbs every day. The persistent sores gradually disappeared and never came back not until this date. My mother had them all her life. Now I am 60 years ,the people I have also recommended the herbal remedy to has a similar result to mine. Am recommending this herbal formula to anyone with HSV1/2 visit their website multivitamincare org

  20. I tested positive for HSV-1 a few months ago and At first I was devastated thinking I have an incurable STD for life. After doing hours of research I quickly realized genital herpes is a filthy parasite that just likes to hide in the human nerves.
    I literally flush it out of my system with the help of natural herbal medicine which I ordered after doing some research. And now I’m HSV-1 Negative, I never believed it until my doctor finally gave me the test results and behold I'm Herpes free.

  21. HPV is a very terrible virus, if not for my Husband and the help of the great Dr. Ofure my life would have been a mess! I was diagnosed with HPV virus in 2014, my husband encouraged me, and told me not to lose hope, I managed to give birth to a baby Boy who was free from this virus, and my Husband was always there for me! One day he came to me and told me that he had found a man who could cure me. Based on scientists, they said there is no cure for HPV virus; he told me that he has seen many testimonies about him on the internet. We decided to contact him, we filled his Herbal home form, and he asked us to buy some local root and herbs items which we did! and he prepared for me a herbal medicine and A MONTH later he asked me to go for a medical test, faithfully hopefully I went for the medical test, and Behold, I was cured from this virus and it was not found in my Body system again... My Dear Husband and my Father Dr. Ofure, God will surely bless the both of you till the end of time, in Jesus name.. If you have any problem kindly contact via his Email: drofureherbalhome@gmail.com..
