Second Stage Theatre presents this new musical comedy based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Last but not least is the lovable Hannah Nordberg. When it comes to talent, there’s nothing small about this little miss.’’
‘‘Ms. Nordberg is frisky and fun, neither overplaying Olive’s oddball quirks nor milking her heart-tugging role as the glue gun holding the family together.’’
‘‘Rory O’Malley ('The Book of Mormon') turns in a winning performance as Frank, Sheryl’s brother, who is recovering from a suicide attempt.’’
‘‘Reconceived after a 2011 La Jolla, CA, premiere, deftly recast and restaged with high-imagination, low-tech flash, the show touches a lot of genuine problems with good humor and just a bit of serious anguish.’’
