Parade Productions is presenting a beautiful production of Undo, directed by Kim St. Leon, at the Studio at Mizner Park through March 1st. I was thrilled to be able to be there for opening. Here's our first review:

"While the dramedy Undo occurs very much in the present, time flows back and forth and eddies in whirlpools as members of an extended family reevaluate regrets and secrets.

The premise – an imaginary Jewish divorce ceremony that rewinds a couple’s wedding day step by step — sounds so much like a sitcom episode that you keep expecting it to slide into shallow farce at any second. But it doesn’t.

Holly Arsenault’s melancholy, compassionate script is shot through with mordant gallows humor, but Parade Productions’ edition faithfully keeps excavating the marrow of marital and familial relationships."
