John & Jen at Chaffin's

Just the Two of Us


Small musicals can be fun. Even smaller, two-person musicals can also work well, but they require absolutely solid contributions from its players. The odds look pretty good, then, for this two-hander featuring Martha Wilkinson and Patrick Waller, gifted locals who have proved that both singing and acting at a high level are on their résumés. Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald's piece shuffles the deck on male/female relationships of all types, and Waller/Wilkinson do all the role playing (brother/sister, mother/father, parent/child, etc.). This one-off departure from Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre's regular schedule is being independently produced by Johnny Peppers. Musical direction is by Tim Fudge.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 14, 1 p.m. Starts: Feb. 4. Continues through Feb. 20, 2010
