|Will Neely as Billy and Sarah Carlin as Annie in The Real Thing|
Through two acts of questioning what love is, and why, The Real Thing left me with a smile and a great sense of delight to have a local theater that continues to bring great plays to their intimate stage.
Not being a theater critic by trade, I don't dare delve any deeper, lest I inadvertently provide a spoiler. I assure you, however, that this poetic, romantic play offers a grand examination of love through beautifully articulated analysis.
