My Favorite Year (II)

As I reported in my post of April 19, Weston High School’s spring musical this year is My Favorite Year. Yesterday’s opening-night performance was thoroughly enjoyable, with some surprising casting and some unusually strong performances. Joav Birjiniuk, Laura Caso, Todd Elfman, Quinton Kappel, and Natalie Birren were all memorable in their portrayals of an interesting array of show-business types. I find it particularly intriguing when an obviously Jewish actor manages to be convincing in portraying an obviously Gentile character and then an obviously non-Jewish actress is equally convincing playing a Jewish mother.
