Merge at The New Colony directed by Andrew Hobgood
Pacing the show itself as if it were a Pac-Man
game is only amusing until it starts to warp
the narrative and stunt characters. Still, Wes
Needham, Lindsey Pearlman, and Omer
Abbas Salem manage to stay vivid throughout
The show’s best moments and performances are its calmest and quietest. Pearlman steals every single scene she’s in as the droll, sarcastic Patti, as does Omer Abbas Salem as a slimy WB exec named Manny.
And once the comedic timing of Lindsey Pearlman and Omer Abbas Salem find their way on stage, the last hour flies by leaving you wanting more.
Windy City Times
Omar Abbas Salem's corporate bisexual coke sniffing flirt is hilarious. The full commitment and humor of this cast is infectious.
