‘Crimes of the Heart’Published Aug 22, 2013 at 1:27 pm (Updated Aug 19, 2013 at 4:09 pm)
“Crimes of the Heart,” a Pulitzer-Prize winning comedy by Beth Henley, plays through August 31 at Little Lake Theatre. The Magrath sisters - Lenny, Meg and Babe - of Hazelhurst, Miss., are having a bad day. It is Lenny’s 30th birthday and no one remembers; wild sister Meg has just returned from Hollywood, the loony bin and her stalled singing career; and kid sister Babe is out on bail after shooting her husband in the stomach because she didn’t like his looks. The comedy is both daffy and endearing, brimming with wit, heart and soul. Little Lake Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Sunny Disney Fitchett directs the ensemble, which includes Deborah Bender as Meg (left), Jena Oberg as Lenny (center) and Lily Junker as Babe. Jason Dille, TJ Firneno and Jennifer Kopach complete the ensemble. “Crimes of the Heart” plays at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, through Aug. 31 with one Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Aug. 25. For tickets, call 724-745-6300 or visit www.littlelake.org.
