How This Play Captures Young Americans’ Struggle to Make It
Review of ‘American Dreamers’

THE BOTTOM LINE:

West of 10th’s production of Lia Romeo’s American Dreamers, a fast-paced play about after college. It’s a good choice if you want to see an honest portrait of what life is like after college between roomates, friends, and people we date through it all.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

The play is about Becca Barrington, who is deciding what to do with her life after being handed her student loans. She also has friends and those helping her: her hookup Trevor, her roomate Mallory, an escort service recruiter Alicia and her high school teacher John. The play has some funny scenes that one can relate to in a difficult world.

CAST & CREW:

Sarah Chalfie (Becca Barrington)...

A great performance by Chalfie as the main character.

Tony Christopher (Trevor Jones)...

Christopher plays a thoughtful guy who plays a date for Becca.

Sue Kim (Mallory Feng)...

A great performance by Sue Kim who steals some laughs during the show.

Violeta Picayo (Alicia Velez)...

A great actress who steals the show a few times with a great performance.

Timothy Mullins (John Malvern)...

Success happens when Timothy Mullins acts in this production.

THE CRITICAL EYE:

The play succeeds in showing struggle for money and success for young people in America.

THINGS THAT STOOD OUT:

I highly recommend seeing it with your friends because the acting was exceptional.

Through August 18th at the WorkShop Theater.
