by Morris Panych (Tarragon Theatre). Stranded in a motel by weather, six musicians struggle to come to terms with their failing careers, failing marriages and unfulfilled desires. Previews Nov 5-11. Opens Nov 12 and runs to Dec 14, Tue-Sat 8 pm, mat Sat-Sun 2:30 pm. $23-$55, rush $15.
The randy members of a string sextet are trapped in a Canadian motel while a winter storm rages outside in Panychs clever comedy. The production including Ken MacDonalds brilliant set is top-notch, and the actors understand the heightened, farcical style while also delivering some resonant emotional notes near the end.
