Seminar is a tightly written character study by Theresa Rebeck, filled with biting humor, which follows four eager students as they vie for the approval of a writing professor with a reputation for being incredibly demanding.
Seminar was praised as â€œa delight and a high point for Falcon. They had everything moving and going in the right direction with this production.â€ Panelists praised the entire ensemble for making their characters â€œendearing and amusingâ€. Michael Shooner as Leonard and Ian Kramer as Martin were particularly impressive. Shooner was â€œoutstanding as the writing seminar teacher. He is like a bull on stage, running over the student’s egosâ€. Kramer was â€œequal parts sardonic, rebellious, and naÃ¯ve–he perfectly fit the part.â€
Seminar continues through February 15th. Tickets can be purchased at www.falcontheater.net.
