Saw The Effect @GloucesterStage last night | stellar acting and writing

GS

We like to support Gloucester Stage and Heidi Dallin, and try to see anything with Lindsay Crouse. There’s no question that Gloucester Stage productions are mostly terrific.

Tom Hauck’s GMG review compelled us to see the New England premiere of The Effect, Lucy Prebble’s 2012 dramatic play at Gloucester Stage. It’s a go see for sure! I think it’s the best play about thorny life and medical themes since Wit. We can delight in Prebble’s dynamite dialogue because the direction, acting, and set are pitch perfect.

Who knew? You can bring that glass of prosecco you didn’t finish back to your seat.

Buy seats on line for Gloucester Stage matinee today  and you’d have time to make it over to Windhover’s dance tonight! Tough summer living here in Gloucester 🙂

There’s an elegant new gallery on Main Street, the Hudson Gallery, and while David Robinson’s beautiful photo exhibit is on display is the perfect time to check it out. The gallery’s lighting is simply gorgeous and the space has a lovely flow. On our way out to dinner, Tom and I only stayed for a few moments, but naturally, we ran into Heidi Dallin and friends 🙂
