Best of Friends

 

continued

As a playwright Daniels is best known for his Escanaba series of Michigan gothic tall tales, but I like him when he tackles contemporary drama. Sometimes you can almost see him sweating to produce recognizable but complex characters. To do that he uses some postmodern devices, like breaking through the "fourth wall" at the front of the stage, and spinning time backwards. Not everything works, but there's no doubt that Daniels does. If you're looking for an evening's entertainment between now and December 18, when Best of Friends closes, the play is a strong bet.    (end of article)
