Summertime
by Charles L. Mee
Directed by Michael Michetti
June 05 - July 11, 2004

A surrealist romance.  Charles L. Mee, white-hot author of Big Love, Berlin Circle, and Wintertime, in his own passionate and idiosyncratic style, collages existing text and pieces of pop culture in this riotous, poignant and giddy exploration of the nature of love.

“A wild essay on the marvels and messiness of love.  The show hits one comic high after another…Michetti knows exactly when to pump up the action to operatic heights and when to pull back and let his eccentric characters express their innermost emotions.”   -Variety

“The show, by turns silly and poetic, gets a sumptuous production under Michael Michetti’s able direction.”   -LA Weekly

“Michetti and his capable cast clearly have a lot of fun here, and the entire design team works wonders.  Mee’s cinematic characters and out-of-this-world situations hit home in isolated rants and spotlights of grand theatricality.”   -Backstage West

“There is plenty of laughter in Mee’s play, Summertime, but there is also a lot to think about.  Director Michael Michetti successfully navigates these dangerous waters.  It is well worth the experience.”   -Pasadena Weekly

“Love is wonderfully dissected and explored.”   -Entertainment Today
